Anne Roiphe is an American writer and journalist. She is best known as a first-generation feminist, and author of the novel Up The Sandbox (1970), which became a national best-seller and made the author's career. It was filmed as a starring vehicle for Barbra Streisand in 1972.
Over a four-decade career, Roiphe has proven so prolific that the critic Sally Eckhoff observed, "tracing Anne Roiphe's career often feels like following somebody through a revolving door: the requirements of keeping the pace can be trying." Eckhoff described the writer as "a free-thinking welter of contradictions, a never-say-die feminist who's absolutely nuts about children".
Since "Up The Sandbox", Roiphe has published seven novels and five memoirs, while contributing essays and reviews to The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, New York Magazine, and others. The New York Times has described her as "a writer who has never toed a party line, feminist or otherwise." Her 1996 memoir "Fruitful: A memoir of Modern Motherhood" was nominated for the National Book Award.
From 1997 to 2002, she served as a columnist for The New York Observer. Her memoir "Epilogue" was published in 2008, and another memoir, "Art and Madness", in 2011. Her most recent book, Ballad of the Black and Blue Mind, was published by Seven Stories Press in May 2015, and received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist.
Roiphe is political by nature but a loyal member of no group and has managed to irritate many. She is a peacenik with a hawk's eye and while she has some friends she probably has more enemies than she would if she could only learn to hold her tongue. She is married to psychoanalyst Dr. Herman Roiphe and has three daughters and two step daughters.
