"Erica Abeel’s sharp, witty, delightfully twisty novel The Commune goes behind the scenes of the women’s movement circa 1970, shedding light on hidden history in a way that is both moving and inspired. These women (and men) are so compellingly drawn that I wanted the book not to end." –Dawn Raffel, The Strange Case of Dr. Couney
The Commune is a comic satire and roman a clef that takes us inside the Hamptons commune populated by the newly liberated women present at the creation of the seminal 1970 Women's March for Equality. The Commune’s pioneering feminists can talk the talk, but find themselves whipsawed between the bold new ideals of the women’s movement and the powerful tug of the past – and therein lies drama.
