When an unexpected medical crisis sends Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth, on a deeply personal journey to tease out the intersections between sexuality and creativity, she discovers an increasing body of scientific evidence that suggests that the vagina is not merely flesh, but an intrinsic component of the female brain. Exhilarating and groundbreaking, Vagina: A New Biography combines rigorous science, explained for lay readers, with cultural history and deeply personal considerations of the role of female desire in female identity, creativity, and confidence, from interviewees of all walks of life. This provocative and engaging book from one of our most respected cultural critics and thinkers elucidates the ties between a woman's experience of her vagina and her sense of self; her impulses, dreams, and courage; and her role in love and in society.
