In case you haven't already

In case you haven't already read enough about all the books coming out now about how everybody needs to just get married and have children RIGHT NOW, especially women over 30, Salon's got another article for you. And they're pissed. Bring on the media-saturated backlash!

A book by Ann Roiphe, who I can only assume is not related to Katie Roiphe, called "Marriage: A Fine Predicament", actually includes the letter that this woman wrote to her own unmarried daughters. An excerpt: "You can't go on just doing as you please, just following your star, just flashing your pretty wings about the universe." I think I have to agree with the Salon writer, who says this book just makes you want to "flash your pretty wings anywhere you damn well please."
