The Book of Jane is a perceptive, tenacious investigation of gender, authority, and art.

Jennifer Habel draws a contrast between the archetype of the lone male genius and the circumscribed, relational lives of women.

Habel points repeatedly to discrepancies of scale: the grand arenas of Balanchine, Einstein, and Matisse are set against the female miniature - the dancer's stockings, the anonymous needlepoint, the diary entry, the inventory of a purse.
