Book Review: Three-Martini Afternoons at the Ritz by Gail Crowther

This was a fascinating book for me. I really enjoyed the combination of biography and historical exegesis of being a woman writer in the 1950s/60s that Crowther presented. Her writing style is incredibly easy to fall into – and whether she was describing the women’s life stories or the historical times and politics of the world they were writing in, I found the sections equally compelling and equally engaging.

Everything about this one was a win for me. I was less familiar with Anne Sexton then I was with Sylvia Plath going in, and the book really sparked my interest in the former and reinvigorated it regarding the latter.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
