Review by Florence King of Vagina: A New Biography, by Naomi Wolf
If you thought there was nothing new to say about female sexuality, you dont know Naomi Wolfs gift for saying nothing new about anything. In her 1991 bestseller, The Beauty Myth, she revealed that attractive women are luckier than homely women. A human shoehorn, she used her subsequent fame to ease herself into the role of political consultant in the 2000 presidential race and reveal that Al Gore has the personality of a tree.
TOPICS: Culture/Society; News/Current Events
Here's a great line from the review.
Seeing the name Anaïs Nin on a page is like seeing a funnel cloud in Kansas: You know whats coming.
Oh, please, Lord, could the Sixties just be OVER?

(does not suffer fools gladly)
Another New York Times highly recommended book I can spare myself the trouble of considering reading.
The nice monogamous Jewish girl in me once again drew the line.
Why would such a person graphically expose her views on the female genitals to the mass media? I know: It's complicated.

I have no idea who or what an Anais Nin is but I get the feeling that I don't want to know.
I do love Florence King though so thank you for posting this.

Oh, sorry; I got into this thread by mistake. I saw
Florence King of Vagina: A New Biography, by Naomi Wolf and thought,
King of Vagina? What did they find out about me?

An insult to all trees.
“Al Gore has the personality of a tree.”
Or possibly who’s coming.
