9781558615403: The Queen Is in the Garbage (Classic Feminist Writers)

"Deft, defiant . . . accurate.” New York Times Book Review

Shifting seamlessly between past and present, consciousness and dreams, Lila Karp explores the conflicted psyche of thirty-two-year-old Harriet Battenberg as she inventories her life during a fourteen-hour labor. Wrenching flashbacks recall embittering conflicts with her mother, unfulfilling relationships with men, a miscarriage, and an abortion. Harriet’s struggle above all is to understand how her perception of womanhood has brought her to this moment of personal crisis.

Lila Karp halts time in the midst of exploring the psychological and sexual entanglements of a woman’s experience. Her wit and distinct literary style make hers a unique voice among writers from the 1960s U.S. feminist movement, a voice that still resounds today for everyone fighting to find themselves and write their own histories and futures. The Queen is in the Garbage is a shocking and absorbing story that uses a feminist perspective to deconstruct fundamental questions of womanhood, autonomy, and the very essence of human existence.

At the time of her death in 2008, she was teaching existential psychotherapy at Antioch University in Los Angeles.

Review:

“Lila Karp is clear about confusion; it’s an accomplishment to map chaos with such skill.” ―The New York Times

“Deft, defiant . . . accurate.” ―The New York Times Book Review

“At any given moment, life becomes an accounting, a listing, a bookkeeper’s sheet offered in answer to the question: what am I doing here? Lila Karp’s novel is, essentially, the ledger-sheet answer to that question.” ―The Village Voice

"For a whole generation of women . . . Lila Karp has managed to get it all on paper.” ―Kate Millet, author of Sexual Politics

"When I read The Queen Is in the Garbage for the first time this year, I was impressed by Karp's daring to write from a feminist perspective in 1969, long before such a perspective was considered legitimate. I believed her narrator, and I believed her story." ―Marilyn French, author of The Women's Room

Descripción Feminist Press at The City University of New York. Hardback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, The Queen is in the Garbage, Lila Karp, Sharon Holland, This is a startling stream-of-consciousness novel that engages questions of feminism which are as relevant today as when the novel was first published in 1969. Shifting beautifully between past and present, consciousness and dreams, Lila Karp explores the complex psyche of thirty-two year old Harriet Battenberg as she painfully reflects on her life while in the midst of a fourteen hour labour. Unmarried and entering premature labour during a holiday in her native New York, Harriet meditates on questions of motherhood, marriage and identity. Vividly told scenes of her past reveal how her history, marked by an embittered relationship with her mother; a series of unfulfilling relationships with men; a miscarriage and an abortion; and an ongoing struggle to understand what being a woman means for her, has brought Harriet to this moment. It is difficult to find authors who deal as candidly with a woman's experience of childbirth as Karp, who writes with a rare, disquieting honesty of its physical and emotional trauma without having her characters dip into self-pity. Karp's wit and unique literary style make her a distinct voice amongst writers from the 1960s US feminist movement, a voice which still resounds today for everyone desperately fighting to find themselves and write their own histories, and futures. This is a shocking and absorbing story which magnificently applies a feminist perspective to deconstruct the fundamental questions of womanhood, autonomy, and the very essence of human existence.
