Author(s): Andrea Dworkin
'This final, short book, is the unfolding development of a life and a mind. It reminds us that she was never primarily a political activist, but a writer and, to herself, a scholar ... Since she died last year, a victim of her enormous size, I have come to think that Andrea Dworkin was more important than I thought at the time.' - Linda Grant, Heartbreak confirms that every bolshy, out-spoken freedom fighter who is the anti-type of standard Western glamour, fast becomes a scapegoat for the hatred of unpopular and hard-to-sell ideas; such as feminism." -- The Crack Magazine. "... explosive ... uncompromising courage ... you could not get a voice more intensely alive - in its analysis of inequities which bind and divide women across race and class, its incisive accounts of oppression and the costs of resistance, its eloquent love of creativity, and its take-no-prisoners truth-telling." - Times Literary Supplement. "Heartbreak is not the memoir of a victim. Dworkin's tone is dry and humorous. Her personality is warm and likeable and, shockingly, she has a wicked sense of humour.
"'Dworkin appears before us, ravaged and thundering like one of Shakespeare's Plantagenet queens, to deliver her fearsome maledictions...one of the few remaining specimens of pure counterculture Romanticism' New York Times Book Review 'you could not get a voice more intensely alive - in its analysis of inequities which bind and divide women across race and class, its incisive accounts of oppression and the costs of resistance, its eloquent love of creativity, and its take-no-prisioners truth-telling.'
