I've already done my thing here on Naomi Wolf's book, Vagina: A New Biography, and so have many other critics far more distinguished than I, in publications across the spectrum.
I could not, however, resist touting a piece by my friend Lauren Sandler in The New York Times, in which she attempts and accomplishes the unthinkable: Unlike the rest of us, she actually talks to Wolf!
The results are insightful and hilarious. After interviewing a scientist on whom Wolf based much of her book, Sandler says he "seemed to care little if Ms. Wolf actually got the science right." And when Wolf says that women's "imperfect realization of their sexuality" affects their ability to "create, explore, communicate, conquer, and transcend," Sandler writes: "It's a lot to pin on a vagina."
