She wants to write an article on the book, and to write this article she has asked me to find a "post-modern young woman of many identities."
So, consider this a casting call. Does anyone know a woman in her twenties who has several identities, a young woman who is several women? This multiplicity may come from identifying with several literary figures or film stars. It may come from participating in different kinds of art or many kinds of fashion. It may come from participating in one kind of art and one kind of sport and one kind of sociality. We are looking for someone who has taken up residence in our culture in divergent places.
Your suggestions, please. The winner gets coverage in a major fashion magazine.
