Norma Fontaine lives in a world of handy tips and sensible advice. Whether it’s choosing the right girdle or honing her feminine allure, she measures life by the standards set in women’s magazines. But Norma discovers that the real world is less delightful—and more sinister—than the one portrayed in the glossies. When dark secrets threaten her brother’s blossoming romance, Norma must decide whether to sacrifice life in a woman’s world for the sake of her brother’s happiness. As her decision is slowly revealed, readers realize that, like life in the magazines, Norma isn’t quite what she seems.
A stunning visual tour de force painstakingly assembled from 40,000 fragments of text snipped from women’s magazines, Woman’s World is a powerful reflection on society’s definition of what it means to be a woman.
