|Plot Summary of The Golden Notebook|
|"The Golden Notebook is a long, wonderful, complicated novel about a middle-aged writer named Anna. Her world is a confusing and emotionally intense world of lovers, leftist politics, and the dilemma of being what she calls a "free woman." After publishing a book that was commercially successful, but unworthy by Anna's standards, and being abandoned by a lover, Anna must try to salvage her identity as a woman and as a writer. Predictably, this causes a nervous breakdown."
Judy Berman, Resident Scholar
