From the bestselling author of The Vagina Monologues and one of Newsweek’s 150 Women Who Changed the World, a visionary memoir of separation and connection—to the body, the self, and the world.

Playwright, author, and activist Eve Ensler has devoted her life to the female body—how to talk about it, how to protect and value it. Yet she spent much of her life disassociated from her own body—a disconnection brought on by her father’s sexual abuse and her mother’s remoteness. “Because I did not, could not inhabit my body or the Earth,” she writes, “I could not feel or know their pain.”

While working in the Congo, Eve was shattered to encounter the horrific rape and violence inflicted on the women there. Soon after, she was diagnosed with uterine cancer, and through months of harrowing treatment, she was forced to become first and foremost a body—pricked, punctured, cut, and scanned. As she connects her own illness to the devastation of the earth, her life force to the resilience of humanity, she is finally, fully—and gratefully—joined to the body of the world.  ISBN 978-1250043979.

Unflinching and inspiring, Eve Ensler calls on us all to embody our connection to, and responsibility for, the world. 

Eve-Ensler-In-The-Body-Of-The-WorldEve Ensler is an award winning playwright, performer, and activist. She is the author of The Vagina Monologues, which has been translated into over 48 languages, performed in over 140 countries, including Off-Broadway and on London’s West End, and has run for 10 years in Mexico City and Paris. Her experience performing The Vagina Monologues inspired her to create V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. Eve Ensler has devoted her life to stopping violence, envisioning a planet in which women and girls will be free to thrive, rather than merely survive.

Today, V-Day is a global activist movement that has raised $85 million and awareness through benefit productions of The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works, and has educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it.
