“Who do we want to be? The American author Meg Wolitzer on her current novel ›The female persuasion‹

»When all is said and done, Wolitzer is an infinitely capable creator of human identities that are as real as the type on this page, and her love of her characters shines more brightly than any agenda.«, Lena Dunham writes in the New York Times on Meg Wolitzer's current novel. In conversation with the co-founder and co-publisher of the Missy Magazine Sonja Eismann, she talks about essential issues of the book: Power in all its facets, feminism, love and loyalty and proves herself to be a perceptive observer of our time.

Meg Wolitzer

MEG WOLITZER is the author of several acclaimed novels, including The Uncoupling (‘tingles with playfulness and wicked observation’ Independent), The Wife (‘has you howling with recognition’ Allison Pearson), The Position (‘one of the best and most human books I’ve read all year’ Erica Wagner) and The Ten-Year Nap (‘as incisive and pitiless and clear-eyed a chronicler of female-male tandems as Philip Roth or John Updike' Chicago Tribune). Most recently, The Interestings was a New York Times bestseller. She lives in New York City. The Female Persuasion is published by Dumont in Germany as “Das weibliche Prinzip”.
