About the Author

Vivian Gornick is the bestselling author of the acclaimed memoir Fierce Attachments, a biography of Emma Goldman, and three essay collections: The Men in My Life, Approaching Eye Level, and The End of the Novel of Love, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.


"Gornick is a gifted writer and her poetic descriptions of the excitement of scientific research and the passion of those who work as scientists is inspirational. . . . This is an important book that, if anyone needed evidence, demonstrates that true equality for women, particularly in the field of scientific research, still seems so far away." --The Sydney Morning Herald

"[Women in Science] opens the discussion about women's diverse problems and ambitions in science." --New York Times Book Review "It is women as subject, the women in science, rather than the women of science, that Vivian Gornick treats in a series of vignettes based on her extensive interviews with women of various ages and status in American academic life." --The New York Review of Books "Strongly felt, vigorously written."--The Women's Review of Books "Gornick's portraits demonstrate the driving force behind science."--The Philadelphia Inquirer "Women in science stir the contemporary imagination. In their hyphenated identity is captured the pain and excitement of a culture struggling to mature."--The Washington Post
