The Common praises feminism in The Consequences in new review

A new review on The Common by Olga Zilberbourg highlights many feminist themes in The Consequences and the urgency to address issues of gender disparity in the art world:

“I found the read to be so exhilarating that as the book drew to its close, it took effort to return to the question about the nature of Minnie Panis’s disappearances. The question: what drives these disappearances, is stated and restated so many times that it, in itself, becomes a disappearing act—woven into the very nature of the book, it disappears from the reader’s consciousness.

Only after I finished the novel, did it occur to me that Niña Weijers showcases a particularly female life trajectory in a world where feminist ideals of equality between genders are a desirable yet distant goal.”
