Description

Botox, bulimia, breast implants, stomach tucks - Eve Ensler is back, with another round of poignant and hilarious stories about the secret lives of women. Here are our intimate obsessions laid bare - who hasn't hungered for shapelier thighs, a nip or tuck or just a little piercing? Ensler toured the world asking women about their anatomical obsessions and gives us their stories: a Puerto Rican's ruminations on fat and family, an Indian beauty's obsession with hair, an LA woman's ultimate concession to her husband. She frames these stories with her own personal journey, serving up riotous excerpts from her lifelong dialogue with her belly - a sassy and conniving antagonist in its own right. We follow her through the serial seductions of low carb diets, ab rollers and personal trainer to the wise words of a woman who taught her how to love her body, and see that it was good.
