With THE GOOD BODY, Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues, turns her unique eye to the rest of the female form. Whether undergoing botox injections or living beneath burqas, women of all cultures and backgrounds feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in. THE GOOD BODY merges cross-cultural explorations with Eve's own personal journey coming to terms with her "less-than-flat, post-forties stomach."
"Ms. Ensler wants to soften the ever-fraught relationship between American women and their bodies, to expose the destructive formulas that lead them to assuage their insecurities by punishing their flesh…rich in pointed, amusing details…forthrightly funny…bristling with wisecracks [and] exotically harvested snippets of wisdom.” —NY Times. "Passionate, funny, frank, revealing, even shocking, and genuinely committed to improving life on this planet." —San Francisco Chronicle.
