Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679773533, Paperback)This is one wacky premise for a book: ask 50 or so women writers what they would do if they had a--ahem, you know, what the title says. What's fascinating--to a guy anyway, at least to one who's trying to imagine what it would be like to be a woman trying to imagine what it would be like to be a guy--is how many of these pieces aren't about sex; they're about power. According to this book, many bright, creative women believe the "Y" chromosome still confers awesome social leverage and means, in the words of one entry, "passwords, perks, and pertinent information I had never even dreamed of." Haven't the "engendered" politics of the past generation put a big dent in all of this? Fortunately, there is another side here too, put most succinctly in the words of crime novelist Patricia Cornwell: "I'd live just as I do now. I suppose that's the best thing you can say, as I guess it means you don't need one, because it really has nothing much to do with adventure and strength."
