Description: At thirty-four, Peggy Orenstein faced a series of dilemmas: She was unsure whether she wanted children, unsure about the impact of motherhood on her career, her relationship, and her sense of self. Why, when women seemed to have so many choices, did she suddenly feel that she had none? After feminist liberation and its subsequent backlash, she realized that women's lives, including her own, were now in a state of flux.

In her latest book, Orenstein looks at womanhood at the beginning of this century. After talking to over two hundred women between the ages of 25 and 45, she has blended their voices into a compelling narrative that allows the reader to "eavesdrop" -- and share their thoughts on ambition and power, the experience of sex and love, and how these things shape the way we assemble the pieces of our lives. In "Flux", Orenstein explores the half-changed aspect of today's world and the ways women still struggle to live full lives and to reach a true balance of the personal and professional. With richly textured portraits and extraordinary depth of reporting, this book offers an opportunity to take part in a conversation with women across generations and lines of experience, an exchange that rarely happens these days.

For all women who are looking for insight into the forces that inform their lives, "Flux" has the power to inspire discussion and, through illuminating the key conflicts of real women, show how life might be changed. Only Peggy Orenstein, with her narrative gift and unique reportorial skills, could produce such a cutting-edge book, a true blueprint for how women comport themselves as the century turns, a bible for sressed-out women trying to make importantdecisions.
