New York Times Bestseller ôSharp and prescientà The appeal of ValentiÆs memoir lies in her ability to trace objectification through her own life, and to trace what was for a long time her own obliviousness to itàSex Object is an antidote to the fun and flirty feminism of selfies and self-help.ö û New Republic Hailed by the Washington Post as ôone of the most visible and successful feminists of her generation,ö Jessica Valenti has been leading the national conversation on gender and politics for over a decade. Now, in a memoir thatPublishers Weekly calls ôbold and unflinching,ö Valenti explores the toll that sexism takes on womenÆs lives, from the everyday to the existential. From subway gropings and imposter syndrome to sexual awakenings and motherhood, Sex Object reveals the painful, embarrassing, and sometimes illegal moments that shaped ValentiÆs adolescence and young adulthood in New York City. In the tradition of writers like Joan Didion and Mary Karr, Sex Object is a profoundly moving tour de force that is bound to shock those already familiar with ValentiÆs work, and enthrall those who are just finding it.
