Women's liberation sought to transform every sector of U.S. society--its educational system, culture, language, politics, and, importantly, the delivery of social services. To enable this movement, women all over the country began to establish women's centers.

In New York City, women from almost every local women's liberation group took over an abandoned building in lower Manhattan on New Year's Eve, 1970. They named the building The Fifth Street Women's Building and renovated it to feed, clothe, shelter, and educate women in need. The take-over was a huge success, attracting hundreds of activists and community members. Thirteen days later, the New York City Tactical Police stormed the building, expelled the women, and ended the action. The City then tore the building down and built a parking lot on the site.

June Arnold was one of the original planners and an active participant in this episode. When she got out of jail, she went home and wrote this novel about what happened. The Cook and the Carpenter, which quickly gained fame for its use of a non- gendered language, remains one of the best representations of the time period that berthed modern feminism and paved the way for lesbian communities.

I can't even recall who sent me to this book, but I want to thank them. This radical feminist separatist-era novel tells a story of a movement in formation, one that I, far from the stream of its events, missed in any detail when it was happening. June is an extraordinarily sensitive observer and gifted raconteuse. Her use of genderless pronouns is brave, and considering how today, 40 years later, that topic is absolutely current, see yo! from Baltimore, prescient. The very helpful introduction suggests that we'll be surprised late in the book when genders are revealed, but I differ, there's no surprise. Maybe that's just because I know in advance what kind of book this is, so I came prepared, or prejudiced you might say.

June made me feel acutely the frustration of some of the characters, and how they've been denied outlets for their feelings for so long. I did not feel her portrayals of robust drinking bouts were persuasive; too bad, because her own drinking, says the introduction, was an issue and she might have had a lot to say.

Well worth the time to read it if you're interested in the history of this movement.

I bought this book because the author is recommended reading by Tee A. Corinne in her book `Dreams of the Woman Who Loved Sex'.

This is a don't miss book -

One tidbit - it is written with "na" for he/she and "nan" for his/her.

A classic, and perhaps, even the beginning of a new literature.--off our backs

Through sex and anger, through love, desire, loss of love, and conspiracy, through some of the realest encounters between parents and children ever written, the novel moves out in spirit to the reality of the `takeover.'--Village Voice

Hard book to understand plot easily. At times it demands attention! Protagonists are steady but complex in their actions.

I'm pleasantly shocked by the reviews, mostly by the date the reviews were written. When I read this book, around 1974, I had little to no idea that it was semi autobiographical and described events that took place in the village while I was in graduate school at Columbia University. I don't know what my reaction says about me, or maybe I just choose to not talk about my reaction. I enjoyed the use of non-gender pronouns. I enjoyed and was challenged by the preconceived notions of gender implied by the roles - cook and carpenter. While the end offered a thought provoking look at my personal view of our society at the time, the revelation brought a smile to my face and a self comforting reassurance of my views at the time. Having read the book shortly after it was published and shortly after the events, in the city I was living in, make me realize I wasn't as conservative as I thought. I found the book a wonderful read, and to this day recommend it to friends and acquaintances when our discussion turns to gender roles and self declaration of gender equality. BTW, I'm a 71 year old, straight male.

In this partially autobiographical work, Arnold tells of a group of women (some lesbians, some not) who form a sort of commune to support each other, and then take the idea one step further by taking over an abandoned school to create a community center to help the poor and others in need. After a few days, the police invade the building and arrest some of the members, and then the city tears down the building. While this is going on, the carpenter and the cook (who are essentially leaders-by-default in the group) have a love affair that is muddled when a visiting revolutionary becomes the third party in a love triangle. Using non-gendered language (and an invented pronoun), "The Cook and the Carpenter" doesn't reveal the genders of the protagonists until towards the end, thereby making the reader think about sex roles and gender roles consciously while reading the story. While this is certainly challenging, it's worth it for this tale that also addresses how differing viewpoints can affect any relationship.

I read this a long while ago and thinking about it still makes me squirm. I had such a hard time with the non-gendered pronouns; drove me crazy! But it made me think about WHY that made me crazy and how this is such a good challenge to one's brain and thinking. Well worth reading, absolutely.
