Abstract:

"In Sylvia Browning's Ten Women Who Shook the World, across a series of vivid, untamed landscapes, her characters wander in search of the obvious - love, fame, a good recipe for canapes - as well as the less obvious. In "Hussie from the West" the narrator undertakes a long erotic quest for satisfaction; in "The Bird Chick" a visionary organizes some unusual park inhabitants for a bold experiment in theater. Wherever these maverick women travel, their bold, comical voices urge us to follow."--BOOK JACKET.
