IN DA CLUB

Feminist book club went off without a hitch finally. Only took two and half years to get it going but dangit, it went. Spurred by C. Heilbrun's huffy talk about lack of female protagonists in contempo-lit, we are now looking for a book of recent-vintage fiction where the girl is the hero and the hero is not the boy saving her with love or meaning or marriage proposals. PLEASE SUGGEST A 'GESSTION. The girl must be doing something valiant with her life.
