IN THE BODY OF THE WORLD

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Eve Ensler

Biography & Memoir • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

To escape repeated rape by her father, Eve Ensler learned to disconnect from her body. “Because I did not, could not inhabit my body or the earth, I could not feel or know their pain,” says the author of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES. This disconnect led her to promiscuity and alcoholism, but it also led her to become an activist in the fight to end violence against women. In 2010, Ensler was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Ensler reads with the rhythms and cadence of an angry, passionate poet, intense and fully aware of the devastating irony of that diagnosis. Forced to deal with her body through extensive surgeries, chemo, radiation, and pain, she begins the healing process, slowly reconnecting to herself and the earth. Raw, unrelenting, no-holds-barred listening. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
