A collection of essays from Judith Thurman, National Book Award-winning writer andNew Yorkerstaff writer.
Judith Thurman, a prolific staff writer at The NewYorker for more than two decades, has gathered a selection of her essays and profiles in A Left-HandedWoman. They consider our culture in all its guises: literature, history, politics, gender, fashion, and art, though their paramount subject is the human condition.
Thurman is one of the preeminent essayists of our time―“a master of vivisection,” as Kathryn Harrison wrote in The New York Times. “When she’s done with a subject, it’s still living, mystery intact.”
