In the Darkroom

Named as a Pulitzer finalist for her new memoir exploring transgender identity, journalist Susan Faludi will appear at our Montgomery Village store on Wednesday, May 3 for a free event.

Faludi hit the world full force in 1991 with her bestselling book Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women. Now a classic of feminism, revered with The Feminine Mystique and The Beauty Myth, Backlash continues to be timely, calling out the glass ceiling, the perceived dangers of women’s career ambitions, and the attack on reproductive rights.  

In her new memoir, In the Darkroom — a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer — Faludi again pushes the boundaries. As she discovers a new relationship with her estranged and transgender 76-year-old father, Faludi delivers the question of our age: Is identity something you “choose” or is it the thing you can’t escape? The book has won the Kirkus Prize for nonfiction.

In addition to the bestselling Backlash, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction, Faludi is also the author of Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man, and The Terror Dream: Myth and Misogyny in an Insecure America. Faludi's work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Nation, among other publications.
