Vilar made this mistake. On to the book, remember folks this was written inmost of the “opinionated reviewers” weren’t even born yet so please hold your “two cents”. Nor had I envisaged the consequences which it would have for subsequent writing and even for my private life – violent threats have not ceased to this date.
It would be more eye-opening and horrifying if ALL American women were as Vilar claims, but luckily I have found several women that defy her stereotype. Sep 20, Rick Marcello rated it really liked it. Her happiness, her safety, her desire is his greatest calling.
