    This anthology has a misleading title. More accurate title something like "100 Years, 100 Women Writers: Virago's 20th Century Fiction". 100 excerpts from 100 writers, one woman writer from each year of the 20th century: a great premise not properly marketed. I am familiar with many of the writers and also fascinated by how many I never heard of or just never got around to reading. This book gives you a taste of each author and you get to see which ones you want more of.... This anthology has a misleading title.

    One of the best anthologies I've ever read -- and it's only excerpts, not even whole stories! Many new authors to check out that I'd never heard of.
