From Medea to Goneril to Sharon Stone's ice-pick murderer to Susan Smith, the image of the violent woman has fascinated readers and audiences in a way that other figures have not. Jo Hendin looks at the figure of the violent woman in her latest book where she argues that a violent woman is a grenade pitched towards both conservative and liberal views of women. Peopled with some of the most fascinating women in history, both real and imagined, Heartbreakers is a thought-provoking read.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The same as reading a very edgy novel; you want to do it with the lights on and the doors locked. Recommended for all academic libraries.' - Marka Kochis, California State University Library, in The Library Journal
