Description

From the fiery intellectual provocateur—and fearless advocate of gender equality—a brilliant, urgent essay collection that both celebrates modern feminism and challenges us to build an alliance of strong women and strong men. Whether asking if all men are obsolete or championing a more discerning standard of beauty that goes beyond the quest for eternal youth, Paglia can always be counted on to get a discussion started. At once illuminating, witty and inspiring, these essays are essential reading that affirms what men and women can accomplish together.


Camille Paglia is the author of Glittering Images, Vamps & Tramps and Sexual Personae.

Reviews

Fiercely erudite, freewheeling and sex-drenched . . . The Helen Vendler-meets-Patti Smith grad seminar you wanted but never quite got [. . . Paglia is] a fearless public intellectual and more necessary than ever – New York Times

Paglia's vision is always fresh . . . A fascinating and challenging reading companion – The Times

Dazzling . . . Compulsively readable – Salon

Polemical, thought-provoking, enraging, funny, and brave – VICE

She flies as high as you can go – New York Times

Remarkable . . . at once outrageous and compelling, fanatical and brilliant – Washington Post

A compilation of Paglia's best, and most incendiary, previously published essays . . . At times infuriating, at times glittering, Paglia's prose is always biting and relentless – Huffington Post

An essential work by an essential public intellectual – VICE

Feminist and culture critic Paglia is at her feisty, full-throated best in this series of short manifestos that spans her career – Publishers Weekly

Paglia is a brilliant thinker on culture and human nature . . . Inspirational in its tone and its message that freedom belongs to both sexes -- Helen Smith – The New Criterion
