#GAReads | A Last Interview with Kate Millett
The writer, artist, and activist Kate Millett died on Wednesday, September 6th, in Paris. She would have turned eighty-three this week. Millett is best known for the 1970 book “Sexual Politics,” a classic of second-wave feminism, which examined the “political aspect” of sex. In it, Millett uncovers the violent misogyny in novels by some of the most acclaimed champions of sexual freedom — Henry Miller, Norman Mailer — and celebrates, by way of contrast, the work of the queer writer Jean Genet.
