Martha P. Nochimson, Film Critic and Writer

No End To Her: Soap Opera and the Female Subject

1993. University of California Press.

Drawing from her experience as a soap opera writer as well as an incisive theoretical framework, Nochimson reclaims the soap opera from the 'trash bin' of culture. She demonstrates how soap opera's structure and characters open up new possibilities for feminine identity, and uncovers the intelligence and beauty inherent in the genre.

"Pulls no punches... All in all, a unique endeavor... combining a forceful intellect and clever detailing. No soft soap."
Stages, Sept/Oct 1993
