Praise for Body Horror "Scary as fuck and liberating ... Moore connects the dots that you did not even think were on the same page."--Viva la Feminista "Sharp, shocking, and darkly funny, the essays in this sapient collection ... expose the twisted logic at the core of Western capitalism and our stunted understanding of both its violence and the illnesses it breeds. ... Brainy and historically informed, this collection is less a rallying cry or a bitter diatribe than a series of irreverent and ruthlessly accurate jabs at a culture that is slowly devouring us."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW "The metaphor that centers the collection ... is captured in a comically macabre way by the book's cover art, which combines freak-show graphics with a punk-zine sensibility. And it is that extra edge, that bizarro brio, that makes this collection resonate long after the political harangue has faded. ... By audaciously linking her disparate Body Horrors to a larger construct -- more complex even than her own immune system, more menacing than mere patriarchy -- Moore allows her essays, each plenty feisty its own right, to punch significantly above their individual weight. Whether one is ready in real life to attribute everything from Crohn's disease to Pacific Time to the machinations of the market, Moore's arguments land with force enough to make even the marginally politicized reader think."--Los Angeles Review of Books "[D]evastating in its unwillingness to flinch ... Body Horror is an incredible, touching, intelligent collection that looks beyond what's comfortable to examine what is true."--Foreword (5 Star Review)
