I have run into several women lately to whom I’ve wanted to recommend the Native Tongue series by Suzette Haden Elgin. It’s a science fiction trilogy, and I thought it was out of print, but Feminist Press has republished them! My copies walked away with one of the third husband’s girlfriends, I think. Have to replace them so Katie can read them and we can use the discussion guides available on the author’s site.
And she even published The Láadan Grammar—I had no idea!
Elgin is better known as the author of The Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense. I’m trying to find a copy of that, too—my copy is gone, although I still have the workbook, and I really want to work through it with shadowkatt.
I didn’t know she’d done other fiction but I plan to look for them.
, I was specifically thinking of you when I went to find out if the books had been republished—if you can find copies, I think you’d get a lot out of them.
