The Ghost of Understanding

“The Ghost of Understanding” fiction by Jean Smith (Arsenal Pulp Press, 1998)

“Smith’s second novel brings back Claudine, who again traipses through a subjective world where the tension that arises from the collision of feminism with a male-centric world is what makes life both interesting and maddening. Smith is nothing if not an acute observer of gender roles and interactions, and her dialogue, both external and internal, consistently rings true.” – Fred Mills, Magnet Magazine Volume 6, Number 35, 1998
