"Still Crazy After All These Years" aims to be an accessible, pointed and playful work on the making and unmaking of femininity. It brings together psychoanalysis, critical theory and cultural studies, to consider the interplay of feminist movements of all kinds towards a better means of constructing femininity and of identifying women's place in modern culture. Rachel Bowlby throws new light on the work of the twentieth century's major women writers (such as Virginia Woolf and Jean Rhys) in the context of major thinkers such as Derrida and Freud. How do the texts written by and about women set the terms for the ways in which we think about what a woman is, or where she might be heading, either individually or collectively? Through such questions Bowlby sensitively explores how writing about women sets the terms for their possible movements, and how feminist theory can still reflect women's movements and desires.
