Description

In 1981, Rebecca Solnit rented a studio apartment in San Francisco, her home for the next twenty-five years. There she began the process of forging a voice in a society that preferred women to be silent. Liberated by West Coast activism, growing gay pride and punk rock, she broke through oppression and over time transformed into a writer and activist who speaks for the marginalised – galvanised to use her own voice for change. Recollections of My Non-Existence is the landmark memoir from a voice of a generation, and a rally cry for generations to come.
