Calling Invisible Women

Jeanne Ray


I remember when I became invisible. I was about Clover’s age and was trying to get a clerk to see me to sell me a computer. I was completely invisible to them. It has happened many times since in retail establishments. If you are a woman of a certain age, you are considered not worthy of attention, and therefore invisible.

Of course, for the sake this story, Clover is rendered literally invisible by a combination of drugs—a hormone replacement for perimenopausal women, a bone density drug, and an anti-depressant. At one time, Clover had been an investigative journalist, and she puts her skills to work meeting with other invisible women to find out how this happened to them.

I think you have to be a certain age to appreciate Clover’s situation. Until you have become invisible yourself, you simply will not be able to relate to her situation and the humor with with Ms Ray tells her story. If you are of a certain age, you will enjoy this book.
