About the Book Sime believed that the reason the contemporary novel was so "utterly useless and unreal" was its refusal to embrace and to represent change, instead maintaining an anachronistic relation to the past by "depicting a past state of things as if it were existing today." Sime chose as her example of obsession with "past states" common literary treatments of women, explaining that while the novel almost inevitably deals with gender on some level, it often fails to impart any idea of women's reality.
