A Publishing Memoir In the time of COVID
Locked down and housebound, the author leafs through her address book, looking for a name and number from long ago. As she turns the pages and sees the entries in it, she recalls the many remarkable encounters and experiences she has had in her 35 years as a feminist publisher. Writers, publishers, friends and co-travellers, all part of an international women’s movement and of an internationalism in publishing that set it apart from the multinational corporate model, then and now. The books she made, the authors she published, the issues she raised, and the friendships she forged, North and South — this little book offers a glimpse into what has been a wonderfully rich and rewarding feminist endeavour, and the sheer exhilaration of being at its cutting edge.
