A provocative coming-of-age chronicle of the Women’s Liberation Movement, as seen through the eyes of a young woman who flees midwestern suburban life to find her true self in 1950s New York City
Eighteen-year-old Zane IndiAnna feels trapped by life in her small midwestern town. So she sets out for New York, landing in Greenwich Village during the revolutionary days of Allen Ginsburg and Jack Kerouac. Zane’s story of rebellious political awakening plays out over the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s, mirroring the rise of the Women’s Liberation Movement and bringing the evolution of American feminism to vivid life.  Stirring and unforgettable, Burning Questions is a timeless story filled with humor, passion, and revolutionary spirit.
