In Glas's latest collection of Russian women's writing a new note of resolution and humour is heard. The heroines range from a wide-eyed child to a 95-year-old sculptress in love with a man 60 years her junior, a noble woman adrift in today's Moscow to an old lady forgotten about in an abandoned village, from a gynecologist to a fairy tale princess. Meet the women writers of Russia in the 1990's--Maria Arbatova, Ludmilla Pertrushevskaya, Dina Rubina, Larissa Miller, Irina Muravyova, Nina Gabrielyan, and Irina Polianskaya--as they write about women unflinchingly facing a world of illness, old age, death, madness and men.

Despite their irresistible attraction, Betty's enjoying her freedom, while Will's finally ready to put a ring on it. Now he'll just have to convince her that nothing could be sweeter than being tied down--with him. . .
