Gemmell’s frankness is extraordinary, and, as she explains in her signed letter printed at the end of the book, anonymity provided the liberation she needed from all the forces which inhibit this kind of total exposure. "The Bride Stripped Bare" justifies her decision because of its honesty and vitality and its sheer quality. This is "The Golden Notebook" for the new millennium. Gemmell has done for women of this era what Doris Lessing did for women of the sixties.
