Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.

When she eventually gets round to the monologues (after what seems like half an hour of "credits" and press-cutting type reviews), some are funny, some are sad, some are bordering on pornographic. What was all the fuss about? It isn't a set of first-world female experiences to which I can relate, though granted some of the tales were from women older than me. Or perhaps that was the point? They were women who maybe shouldn't have had those experiences in the late 20th or early 21st centuries in what we believe to be a civilised, broad-minded and inclusive culture.
