Críticas:

Advance Praise for "In the Body of the World"

"Astonishing"
--Mary Oliver

"A masterpiece. Ensler has accomplished the impossible: weaving together huge, bold, world-changing ideas with beautiful writing, amazing metaphors, and original structure. Truly one of the most courageous and original works of our time."
--Naomi Klein

"This book is a ride, a river ride through rapids and depths and shallows, dried-up eddies, whirlpools and torrents, crystal-clear pools and the vast ocean at the end. What a thrill and what a spear through the heart. I am astounded by the honesty and clarity of each word."
--Elizabeth Lesser

"Ensler has written a profound and vulnerable book, full of tenderness and strength. I was amazed by the clarity of her vision and the power of her message about the body and self. This book isn't meant only for patients; it is meant for anyone whose life has intersected with illness--in short, for all of us."
--Siddhartha Mukherjee

"I dare anyone to read "In the Body of the World" without crying, without crying out, without getting up and rising to this beautiful broken world with awe and gratitude. There is no pity here, only the raw force of courage in the face of fear and violence, and the healing grace of honesty."
--Terry Tempest Williams

"Eve Ensler incarnates the pain of the women in the Congo, victims of rape and torture; and of the Earth, victim of so much desecration. Her heart and body are broken, her anger is like fire, and the passion of her writing rattles your soul. This is true literature and true activism."
--Isabel Allende

"Eve Ensler's memoir is not only wild and raw and incredibly important, it's also that rarest of achievements--a compulsively readable, stunningly rendered work of art that delivers hope and truth, challenge and solace, sometimes simultaneously."
--Alexandra Fuller""

--Entertainment Weekly"Ensler is passionate. And her new book conveys every ounce of that passion."
--Detroit Free Press"If there is one woman who can write with passion and without reservations about the brutal emotional and physical pain of living through uterine cancer -- agonizing surgeries, organ removal, chemotherapy and other invasive procedures, it is Ensler."
--Minneapolis Star-Tribune"Stunning."
--Chicago Tribune"Powerful and satisfying . . . Ensler writes with verve and urgency about dealing with disease, facing her demons and repairing relationships."
