The Vagina Monologues

New or Used: $15.20
"I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues...At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them. Women secretly love to talk about their vaginas. They get very excited, mainly because no one's ever asked them before." A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, "The Vagina Monologues" is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities and colleges throughout the world, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement - V-Day - to stop violence against women. Eve Ensler's work gives voice to real women's fantasies and fears.

About the Author

Eve Ensler is the author of several plays. She is working on a new book and play, THE GOOD BODY. Ensler received a 1999 Guggenheim Fellowship in Playwriting. She lives in New York City with her partner, Ariel Orr Jordan.


Playwright and activist Ensler's off-Broadway hit has been so successful it's spawned an internationally touring show and a nonprofit organization that supports work to stop violence against women and girls. Drawing from hundreds of interviews, some presented nearly verbatim, others as composites, and encompassing women of all races, ages, backgrounds, sexual preferences and nationalities, Ensler's one-and-a-half-hour, unabridged performance beckons listeners to reconnect with the "unnamed, untamed and unknown" down there. The sketch topics range from mundane yet funny (menstruation, gynecological exams, thong underwear and moaning styles) to truly poignant (rape, genital mutilation and their distressing statistics). Ensler tackles each with equal passion, in a voice as changeable as the show's tone. Narrated mostly in highly affected voices, like the memorable screaming, Southern accent in the piece called "My Angry Vagina," or the intense poetic articulation of "Reclaiming Cunt," Ensler's performance also portrays the reverence, awe and "deep worship of vagina" she felt after witnessing the birth of her granddaughter in a final segment dedicated to her daughter-in-law, entitled "I Was There In The Room."

I think readers, men as well as women, will emerge from these pages feeling more free within themselves - and about each other' Gloria Steinem 'Eve Ensler is the Pied Piper. She is leading women and the world to a different consciousness of the essence of women' Gillian Anderson 'Both a celebration of women's sexuality and a condemnation of its violation' NEW YORK TIMES 'Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving ... it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction' VARIETY 'I feel my life has changed.
