The Female Thing: Dirt, envy, sex, vulnerability (Vintage)

The Female Thing: Dirt, envy, sex, vulnerability (Vintage) - Laura Kipnis Well researched, wonderfully poetic, and at times (the essays on Sex and Dirt) quite fierce and funny all at the same time. Even if you don't agree with everything Laura Kipnis has to say in this short, but gripping tome, I think it's an interesting social commentary that everyone in our post modern world should read. We've definitely made progress, but there's still a lot more progress that needs to be made, and maybe a good place to start is looking within ourselves.

I am intrigued to hear her lecture at Elmhurst College on Narcissism: A Defense once it's rescheduled, (It was originally supposed to take place March 5, but we had a big snow storm so it was cancelled) as I like that she speaks her mind no matter what.
