Marge Piercy is a poet and novelist whose award-winning work over five decades has resonated with political issues. Highly respected as a contemporary feminist writer, she has published 15 volumes of poetry, 15 novels, a memoir, and a nonfiction book on the craft of fiction. Her writing stems from a political commitment that began in the 1960s in the Vietnam anti-war movement. Her early novels, such as Small Changes (1973), have been used as historical documents in women's studies courses. Often her protagonists, like Connie in Woman on the Edge of Time (1976), are women trying to establish some control over worlds that are increasingly restrictive. Her novels include He, She, and It (1991), Storm Tide (1998), which she wrote with her husband Ira Wood, Three Women (1999), and the memoir Sleeping with Cats (2001) [New York State Writer's Institute, State University of New York]
