Contemporary Culture • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Model, actress, and entrepreneur Emily Ratajkowski narrates her own essays, highlighting their powerful honesty. She begins with childhood memories, noting that her mother's beauty commentary made an impression on her at 3 years old. Ratajkowski explores the confusing time of her adolescence, which was complicated by a modeling career that began at 14. Explaining how she disassociates from her body during nude photo shoots, Ratajkowski uses a flat tone to convey her mental state. It's only in the "Buying Myself Back" essay that Ratajkowski shows real emotion, along with projecting her determination to persevere after being assaulted by a fraudulent photographer. Ratajkowski shares thoughts on sexuality, feminism, and power dynamics in a nuanced way that will have listeners looking for more from her.
