    Meg Wolitzer

    Top Ten Books

    The author Meg Wolitzer, who lives in New York City, sold her first story to a children’s magazine at age 11. She has several books on the New York Times bestseller list, among them The Wife, which was made into a movie starring Glenn Close. Her writing, which often centers on explorations  of feminism and equality, includes the 2012 essay “The Second Shelf,” published in the New York Times Book Review, which addresses why women’s fiction is often less highly regarded as men’s. Her latest novel is “The Female Persuasion,” which dives into the complexities of second-wave feminism that has become so pertinent in the era of Me Too. About her new book, she posed these questions to New York Magazine: “What about female power? What about people’s ambivalence towards it? What about the excitement around it? And also, how do people make meaning of the world?”
