Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joanna Russ (born February 22, 1937) is an American writer, academic and feminist. She is the author of a number of works of science fiction, fantasy and feminist literary criticism and is best known for The Female Man, a novel combining utopian fiction and satire. It used the device of parallel worlds as a form of a mediation of the ways that different societies might produce very different versions of the same person, and how all might interact and respond to sexism. Russ was born in New York City to teachers Evarett I. and Bertha Zinner Russis. Russ began creating works of fiction at a very early age. Over the following years she filled countless notebooks with stories, poems, comics and illustrations, often hand-binding the material with thread. Russ graduated from Cornell University, where she studied with Vladimir Nabokov, in 1967 and received her MFA from the Yale Drama School in 1970. After teaching at several universities, including Cornell, she became a full professor at the University of Washington.show more
