Publisher's Summary

A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, The Vagina Monologues is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities all across America and at hundreds of college campuses, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement - V-Day - to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate, and wise, Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who hears it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again."I am so pleased to present this just-recorded audio edition of my play for people to hear in America and around the world," Ensler said. "Often during my travels performing and in discussions about The Vagina Monologues, many people have asked me to make a recording so that they could listen to it again and again. With the online introduction coming just before V-Day 2001, it also means a lot to me that the sales of The Vagina Monologues will help support the expanding movement to stop violence against women."Hear an Interview with Eve Ensler!


What the Critics Say

"Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction." (Variety)

don't listen when the kids are around

This was extremely funny. I think I heard the word "Vagina" more in this than I have my whole life. Only problem is that if you have small children--don't let them listen. There is a lot of profanity.

Not a successful audio experience

The narrator's voice was grating. The author confuses vagina with vulva,which I found annoying. I kept wondering why this book was so popular. Perhaps a live show and audience interaction are critical to appreciating this work. It didn't work for me in audio alone.
