Nyssa's Reading Life

I like books. Well-written books, which generally excludes most YA (sorry, everybody). I edit literary fiction in my spare time, and I eat up books with great prose and no pretentiousness. I also love good speculative fiction and frequently read classics.

Renegade Women: Gender, Identity, and Boundaries in the Early Modern Mediterranean

Renegade Women: Gender, Identity, and Boundaries in the Early Modern Mediterranean - Eric R. Dursteler I wish there was more to this book, because by the end, I was fascinated. Dursteler did some meticulous research and presented three stories of women at the locus of politics, religion, and gender relations. Makes me want to learn about the Mediterranean more.
