Reviews

Through her seamless storytelling and meticulous research, Rachel Gross shows how long we have misunderstood the bodies of half the people who have ever lived, how much we still have to learn, and how wondrous and rewarding that quest can be. Vagina Obscura is science writing at its finest--revelatory, wry, consequential, necessary, and incredibly hard to put down.--Ed Yong, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of I Contain Multitudes
Vagina Obscura is a marvel of a book--lyrical, compassionate, infuriating, insightful, and wise. Rachel E. Gross's exploration of the history, science and politics of female anatomy should be read by women, men, and everybody seeking to be smarter about who we really are.--Deborah Blum, author of The Poison Squad
