The Body Electric presents a survey of radical feminist prose and poetry, interspersed by a smattering of tasteful erotic photography. The work is diverse, but nothing that redefines dialogues: rather, it's a collection of writers, some at the top of their game, some simply finding their stride, all speaking on a relatively narrow subject with tremendous gravity and great concern. The collection can be a bit heavy for some, but taken as a survey it weaves together a number of voices engaged in a single conversation adeptly. Are you interested in a deconstruction, and summary reconstruction, of bodies, the politics of bodies, and the functions (both erotic and mundane) that surround them? If so, pick up The Body Electric.
