Reviews

  • "Her book is a searing and thoroughly fascinating exploration of the complex wildlife of female sexuality and desire."

    New York Times
  • "At last, a new generation of women writers is addressing the powerful issues of female sexuality. I gulped this wonderful book down in one sitting, like a novel. Brava Naomi Wolf for your courage, your intelligence, your lucid prose."

    Erica Jong
  • "Refreshing... Highly evocative... Wolf does two important things very well: reminding readers her own age what it felt like to be a teenage girl, and providing a crash course on the wildly varying cultural meanings attached to female sexuality throughout history"

    The Ottawa Citizen
  • "Naomi Wolf [is] the best writer about women and sexuality that we have"

    Toronto Sun
  • "Fascinating... Wolf celebrates the ancient concept, heavily suppressed in the 20th century, that women are the more carnal sex"
