Eve Ensler is an international icon of women's rights advocacy all over the world and the bestselling author of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES. In her latest dramatic call-to-arms, Eve confronts the cultural obsession with having "a good body." Narrated through a series of journal entries and interviews, the collection presents women undergoing injections of Botox; young girls struggling with eating disorders; teenagers in tattoo and piercing parlors and shrouded Afghani women, for whom even the taste of ice cream is outlawed. Eve shares her own fixation with her stomach, recounting the numerous carbohydrate-free diets, abrollers, and personal trainers that failed miserably to yield true self-acceptance. With powerful insight THE GOOD BODY investigates our obsession with body image and offers an empowering message of self-love.
