Poetry. Alyse Knorr's MEGA-CITY REDUX is a marvel. In 1405, Christine de Pizan, the world's first female professional writer, published an allegorical work called The Book of the City of Ladies, in which she imagined constructing (with the help of her fairy godmothers Reason, Rectitude, and Justice) a walled city where women could live safe from sexism, misogyny, and gendered violence. Six hundred years later, women across the world still find themselves in need of such a city. MEGA-CITY REDUX, a novel in verse remix of Pizan's allegory, charts a modern-day road-trip search for the mythical city, with the help of 21st- century feminist heroes Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Xena Warrior Princess, and Dana Scully from The X-Files.
