Description

With the clarity, insight, and sheer exuberance of language that makes her one of The New York Times' premiere stylists, Pulitzer Prize-winner Natalie Angier lifts the veil of secrecy from that most enigmatic of evolutionary masterpieces - the female body - exploring the essence of what it means to be a woman. Angier takes on everything from organs to orgasm and delves into such topics as female aggression, creating a joyful, fresh vision of womanhood. In "Unscrambling the Egg" she explains how life begins in the woman with one perfect solar cell. "Default Line" explores the question: Is the female body a passive construct? In "The Well-Tempered Clavier" and "Circular Reasonings", Angier discusses the evolution of the clitoris and the story of the breast. "Spiking the Punch" defends female aggression. And "A Skeptic in Paradise" is a call for revolutionary psychology.
