In its more transcendent passages . . . the author steps beyond the reach of any 'Pygmalion' and becomes a more dangerous kind of beautiful. She becomes a kind of god in her own right: an artist."u003cbru003e—Melissa Febos, u003ciu003eThe New York Times Book Reviewu003c/iu003eu003c/bu003eu003cbru003eu003cbu003eu003cbru003eA "MOST ANTICIPATED" AND "BEST OF FALL 2021" BOOK FOR * VOGUE * TIME * ESQUIRE * PEOPLE * USA TODAY * CHICAGO TRIBUNE * LOS ANGELES TIMES * SHONDALAND * ALMA * THRILLEST * NYLON * FORTUNEu003c/bu003eu003cbru003eu003cbu003eu003cbru003eA deeply honest investigation of what it means to be a woman and a commodity from Emily Ratajkowski, the archetypal, multi-hyphenate celebrity of our timeu003cbru003eu003c/bu003eu003cbru003eEmily Ratajkowski is an acclaimed model and actress, an engaged political progressive, a formidable entrepreneur, a global social media phenomenon, and now, a writer. Rocketing to world fame at age twenty-one, Ratajkowski sparked both praise and furor with the provocative display of her body as an unapologetic statement of feminist empowerment. The subsequent evolution in her thinking about our culture’s commodification of women is the subject of this book. u003cbru003eu003cbru003eu003ciu003eMy Bodyu003c/iu003e is a profoundly personal exploration of feminism, sexuality, and power, of men's treatment of women and women's rationalizations for accepting that treatment. These essays chronicle moments from Ratajkowski’s life while investigating the culture’s fetishization of girls and female beauty, its obsession with and contempt for women’s sexuality, the perverse dynamics of the fashion and film industries, and the gray area between consent and abuse.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eNuanced, fierce, and incisive, u003ciu003eMy Bodyu003c/iu003e marks the debut of a writer brimming with courage and intelligence.u003c/pu003e
