Power Is Searingly Political and Personal In Melissa Febos’ “Girlhood”

Melissa Febos "Girlhood" book review: Melissa Febos is in a black turtleneck, next to the cover art of her book "Girlhood." The book title says the word "Girlhood" in dark magenta lettering over and over until it fades into orange, spelling her name, like a sunset. It's all against a black background.

Secrets, silence, internalized misogyny, power, desire, and the catastrophic — yet very common — ways in which girls are harmed as they grow into women are all themes that Febos examines in “Girlhood,” an essay collection that blends memoir, journalism, and cultural critique.
