Naomi Mitchison's Memoirs of a Spacewoman is the last book I've read that fits this.

I know these aren't books, but my field of expertise is film and I think there are a ton of female directors that don't get the love they deserve. Here are some of my favorites:

Sally El Hosaini
My Brother, The Devil (It's on Netflix right now. And it's the best and most surprising debut film I've seen since Brick. I'm putting it at the top because I want you all to see it.)

Claire Denis
Beau Travail
35 Shots of Rum
Bastards
Trouble Every Day

Jane Campion
Sweetie
The Piano
Bright Star
Top of the Lake (TV show but w/e)

Andrea Arnold
Fish Tank
Wuthering Heights (2011)

Susanne Bier
Brothers
After the Wedding

Sarah Polley
Away From Her
Take This Waltz
Stories We Tell

Amy Heckerling
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Clueless
Vamps (Extremely underrated)

Haifaa al-Mansour
Wadjda

Chantal Akerman
Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles

Ida Lupino
The Hitch-Hiker

Agnes Varda
Cleo from 5 to 7
Vagabond

Mira Nair
Salaam Bombay!
Mississippi Masala

Sally Potter
Ginger and Rosa
Orlando

Okay I'll stop now. But seriously. All of these films are great.

I just reread The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. Her narrators are a father and a daughter and there are two opposite sex relationships that are very well handled (and one not so well). And it is a fun story that makes you want to travel to Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Pyrenees, and Istanbul and chase down obscure medieval texts.

Not an addition, but I'm just dropping this link here because of things and stuff and reasons.
