Elizabeth Renzetti is no stranger to the publishing and journalism scene. A columnist for the Globe & Mail, author of bestseller Based on a True Story, and veteran reporter, Renzetti is making waves with her latest work, Shrewed. This is a collection of essays about women—women you know, women you respect, perhaps the woman you are. Peppered with heartfelt letters to the people she loves, visceral memories of moments of trial and triumph, and observations to make you laugh and cry, this is a book that North 49 points out, “you’ll want to give a copy to every woman you know.”
