NPR Great Read of 2016Author and Guardian US columnist Jessica Valenti has been leading the national conversation on gender and politics for over a decade. Now, in a darkly funny and bracing memoir, Valenti explores the toll that sexism takes from the every day to the existential. Sex Object explores the painful, funny, embarrassing, and sometimes illegal moments that shaped Valenti's adolescence and young adulthood in New York City, revealing a much shakier inner life than the confident persona she has cultivated as one of the most recognizable feminists of her generation. In the tradition of writers like Joan Didion and Mary Karr, this literary memoir is sure to shock those already familiar with Valenti's work and enthrall those who are just finding it."Jessica Valenti is a breath of fresh air. She offers the kind of raw honesty that can feel like a punch in the gut, but leaves you with the warmth of a deep embrace." — Ms. Magazine"One of the most visible and successful feminists of her generation." — Washington Post"A gutsy young third wave feminist." — The New York Times

A standard introduction to what it is like being an avowed feminist in the digital age. Full of deeply personal anecdotes and written in an easy, conversational style.

Another example of some literal creativity, no logic and no sense of community. Just an individual named Jessica, an some money in her pocket. A product of a communication degree at a US college and mass media.
