Tara Moss's first work of non-fiction - a fascinating mix of memoir and social comment - is sparking conversation everywhere. What are your fictions?

In her tenth book and first work of non-fiction, Tara Moss blends memoir and social analysis to examine the common fictions about women.

She traces key moments in her life -- from small-town tomboy in Canada, to international fashion model in the 90s, to bestselling author taking a polygraph test in 2002 to prove she writes her own work -- and weaves her own experiences into a broader look at everyday sexism and issues surrounding the under-representation of women, modern motherhood, body image and the portrayal of women in politics, entertainment, advertising and the media.

Deeply personal and revealing, this is more than just Tara Moss's own story. At once insightful, challenging and entertaining, she asks how we can change the old fictions, one woman at a time.
