Feminism in Great Circle

Our #LitCircle recently started reading Maggie Shipstead’s 2021 novel GreatCircle, which was nominated for the Booker Prize. The novel tells the story of Marian Graves, a fictional female pilot, who attempts to fly around the world. At the same time, she tells Hadley’s story. She is a modern-day Hollywood actress who plays the role of Marian in a new movie. This novel presents feminism in a great way as the reader gets an opportunity to observe how society treats women differently between the 20th and 21st centuries. We can’t wait to find out more!
