Praise for Requiem for a Female Serial Killer:

In a powerful new page-turner of a book… Phyllis Chesler has given us a remarkable document. I cannot imagine any civilized reader of Requiem ever again viewing a life in prostitution as anything other than a cruel and miserable fate. —Bruce Bawer

“This book is a tour de force.” —Sheila Jeffreys

"We finally have begun to recognize women as victims — but why the silence when women fight back? Phyllis Chesler breaks this silence in Requiem for a Female Serial Killer. —Gloria Steinem

Praise for A Politically Incorrect Feminist

“A Politically Incorrect Feminist is filled with the Second Wave's stories of love and pain, kindness and cruelty, high expectation and disappointment… She delves into dark places that have sullied the feminist dream but also into the jewels of friendship that feminism… has brought.” —Paula J. Caplan

“Dr. Chesler recaptures both the glory of feminist awakening and the audacity and passion of her early writings. With the wisdom of age, she seeks balance, generosity, but not acceptance; her indignation on behalf of oppressed women, and her vision of liberation, are still as passionate as ever.” —Judy L. Herman

“A marvelous unforgettable read. Outrageous, brilliant, and courageous..I can’t put it down. I promise, neither will you!” —Lenore Walker

Praise for An American Bride in Kabul

"Phyllis Chesler is by far the bravest and most outspoken American feminist to address the plight of Muslim women. It is a moving account of the harrowing experience of one woman who almost meets her death in a culture that could not be more alien to her American upbringing. I recommend this book be put on the reading list of every American school." —Ayaan Hirsi Ali

"This is a bold book; intimate and rich in detail; as revealing a story about class, gender and religious differences as one will find. Chesler is a voice crying out for women. She had the right training. She will never stop." Kate Millett

"This is a wondrous, invaluable memoir and meditation on women, culture, history, and the meaning of freedom. Phyllis Chesler tells a moving story in a direct, unaffected style and is able to draw conclusions of a wider import." —Ibn Warraq
