You might be interested in some feminist interpretations of Augustine. Unfortunately the Confessions chapter doesn't appear to be in the preview of this book but it still provides useful background:

This article draws together many of the concerns raised today - the ways in which desire, friendship and evil are interlaced in Confessions.
. You may need to access it through the university JSTOR database but here is a link in case. It is entitled "evil, friendship, and Iconic realism in Augustine's Confessions and the author is Richard. B. Miller.
