Transcript January 1974 BROADSIDE Page 7 FCC (continued) if we care enough to write about it. Write the ABC network on this one. It came on during "Toker's Wild". Keep us informed. Make double use of your viewing time by monitoring and reporting. Leave messages at the Women's Center or call Tanice Blue (522-0020) or Rosaland Curtis (472-4046). VERY IMPORTANT! We are asking stations to post job openings with the Women's Center. Channel 11 has sent us two openings this past week (one for a co-anchorperson, another for a weekend weather reporter). Please be sure your resumes are on file with WOMAN POWER. Tanice Blue ****** BOOK REVIEW Take a fortyish female journalist, Middle American, allergic to intimacy, afflicted with intermittent cuteness, and send her out to write a book on What American Women Are Really Like. You will get, if A Different Woman by lane Howard is any evidence, a formless and shallow book, in which superficial personal reminiscences are interspersed with verbatim reports of dutiful interviews. Women involved in abortions, self-help clinics, and lesbianism rate a dozen pages. But there is a whole chapter on the domestic logistics of the Cat Lady (old lady, many cats, need I go on?). With her reluctance to get involved, Ms. Howard finds it somehow natural for human affairs to work out somewhat badly. HenCe she does not inquire into the causes. But when someone seems totally happy, she just lies back and turns on the tape recorder and lets Pollyanna have her heyday, again questioning nothing in her glad daze of basking in someone else's happiness. There is an overall passivity to this book -- a sentimentality and dutifulness about the project which suggest to me the worst and most trite typical characteristics of American Womanhood. There are no brilliant generalizations; hell, there are hardly even any stupid ones (I hunted, before writing this review). This book offers very little that is interesting or enlightening except about details of Tane Howard's family life, a subject in which I am not much interested because Tane Howard says nothing to command my interest. I must join the ranks of reviewers in Ms. and the New York Times who thought the book unsuccessful. Perhaps it attempted too much; certainly it achieved too little. What might yet be achieved is evident, I think, in an article by Gail Sheehy in New York magazine (December 10, 197 3) about the most powerful woman in New York. Brilliantly written, it tells more in several pages than Tane Howard tells in several hundred. We need a book about American women; I wish Gail Sheehy would write it.
