Staff Reviews

An incredibly honest, deeply personal and breathtakingly rabid look at feminity, morality and modern society by a writer who takes no prisoners. Crucial, fascinating reading regardless of your gender.

— Justin


With humor, rage, and confessional detail, Virginie Despentes--in her own words "more King Kong than Kate Moss"--delivers a highly charged account of women's lives today. She explodes common attitudes about sex and gender, and shows how modern beauty myths are ripe for rebelling against. Using her own experiences of rape, prostitution, and working in the porn industry as a jumping-off point, she creates a new space for all those who can't or won't obey the rules.
