Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praise for Cunt:

"Bright, sharp, empowering, long-lasting, useful, sexy."—San Francisco Chronicle

"Cunt does for feminism what smoothies did for high fiber diets—it reinvents the oft-indigestible into something sweet and delicious."—Bust

"Cunt is one of the most dangerous books I ever read, ever."—Robin D. G. Kelley

With trademark precision and razor-sharp wit, Inga Muscio explores the impact of violence, abuse, war, and cultural trauma on our most intimate lives in order to uncover a path toward healthy and imaginative sex and love. The long-awaited follow-up to Cunt, Rose breaks new ground in answering a fundamental question in feminist and antiracist writing: how do we identify, witness, and then recover from trauma—as individuals, as families, as communities, and as a country? Muscio's ability to address dire topics with vigor and bravery allows her readers to confront the true brutality of a violent culture, then to react powerfully with righteous rage and hopeful determination.

Chilling, eye-opening, and thoroughly enjoyable, Rose offers a fresh and exhilarating perspective on achieving empowerment and self-possession.

Inga Muscio is the author of Cunt: A Declaration of Independence and Autobiography of a Blue-Eyed Devil. She lives in the Pacific Northwest and lectures widely across the nation. For more information, visit www.ingalagringa.com.
