Summary
"Fast Cars and Bad Girls: Nomadic Subjects and Women's Road Stories explores the road narratives of women and the various ways their work re-maps American space. Moving from Mary Rowlandson's famous captivity narrative to the frontier texts of the American West to the postapocalyptic novels of post modern experience, Fast Cars and Bad Girls interrogates the intersections of nomadic theory and contemporary feminism."--Jacket
