Reviews

With a sociologist's eye, a reporter's nose, and a Double D brain, Sarah Thornton explores the contradictions, power, and fundamental formidability of breasts. What a treat to follow her into worlds largely unknown as she upends culture-bound thinking and exposes breasts for what they are (or should be): a part of a woman, to be shown or not shown, used or not used, as she and she alone deems fit. Exquisitely written and consistently illuminating.--Mary Roach, New York Times bestselling author
Tits Up is Sarah Thornton at her best: irreverent, witty, deeply researched, and enlightening. I learned a lot.--Judy Chicago, artist
Sarah Thornton offers a revealing look at our most misunderstood organ. Her message is both powerful and overdue: it's time for us to shape the narrative of our own bodies.--Florence Williams, author of Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History
