“Elayne Rapping’s lucid The Culture of Recovery examines the roots and results of . . . [a] sea change in our notions of why so many bad things happen to so many good women. . . . What’s most admirable is the seriousness of Rapping’s effort to understand, to refrain from judging.” —Francine Prose, New York Newsday

“[Rapping’s] research into the movement is voluminous; her perceptions are astute. . . . Virtually every page is thought-provoking. Curious, well-informed and open-minded, Rapping is the sort of person I’d like to get stuck with in an airport shut down by a storm, for the conversation would be enthralling.” —Celia Morris, Houston Chronicle

“Articulate, historically grounded, and well informed.” —Kirkus Reviews
