In this book, the first comprehensive, critical survey of all of Piercys fiction to date (including her newest novel, The Longings of Women), the author places Piercy in American literary history and in American neofeminist thought. She also highlights Piercys analysis of power patterns in intimate relationships and in society, and constructions of sexuality and gender as they relate to issues of class and ethnicity.

Situated within a feminist discursive space, The Repair of the World both builds on and challenges earlier Piercy criticism.
