Review of 'Love, Leda' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

More of 3.5 rating. Liked lots about this, but was very frustrated about the way the middle aged woman's body was described in such a derogative tone and it felt like the male characters had more space for variations within their gender bracket than the female ones. Of course those brackets were quite narrow in the time the novel is set in, but the male gaze of the time is very palpable.
