The woman who brought us the amazing "Vagina Monologues" is back with an equally important, yet sobering, memoir. Ensler draws irrefutable parallels between her cancer and the raping of Congolese women: each is undeserved, a violent upset to the balance of the body/world, irreversibly damaging, leaving tangible marks upon its victims through disconnect and guilt. Simply astounding. ~ Reviewed by Jess Hanlon
