Talking To Women
20cm x 13cm. [viii], 216 pages. Lettered french fold wrappers.
With an introduction by Ali Smith and a new Afterword by Nell Dunn. “In 1964, Nell Dunn spoke to nine of her friends over a bottle of wine about sex, work, money, babies, freedom and love. The novelist Ann Quin says she appears to be a ‘singular girl, singular and single but questions the use she makes of her freedom. The Pop artist Pauline Boty reveals she married ‘the first man I could talk very freely to ten days after meeting him. Kathy Collier, who worked with Dunn in a Battersea sweet factory, talks about what it takes to ‘get out of a life that isnt fulfilling. Edna OBrien tells us about the time she inadvertently stole a brown georgette scarf and the lesson she took from it: ‘Morality is not the same thing as abstinence. After more than fifty years out of print, Talking to Women is still as sparkling, honest, profound, funny and wise as when it was first published.” (publisher’s blurb)
