    This novel in stories tracks ten years in the life of Susan, a journalist and feminist, during a time of transition in America

    Susan is an activist. And yet, though her political ideals form the center of her life, she questions her convictions. At the heart of this string of interconnected stories are tensions among ideas, feelings, and action. Miner deftly interweaves Susan’s story with the tales of women whom Susan will never meet. The result is a textured and enveloping book that creates a sense of universality.

    Written with a deep understanding of activism, Miner’s novelistic retrospective of the feminist movement questions everything from marriage to Marxism. This fascinating work gives a true and unflinching view of what it means to be a woman in the world.

Editorial Reviews

  • “This is a compelling book, invigorated by Susan’s idealism and enthused with her deep passion for life.” —Publishers Weekly

  • “I liked the form of Movement very much—it is indeed a novel of movement, political, personal movement from country to country and subculture to subculture . . . vignettes and stories out of Susan’s life, but never episodic, always carrying her development as a person and as a political personage a step farther.” —Marge Piercy
