Curbside Splendor is thrilled to announce BODY HORROR: ESSAYS ON MISOGYNY AND CAPITALISM by Anne Elizabeth Moore, slated for publication in March 2017.
Unspeakable acts are committed on women’s bodies under capitalism—in entertainment, medicine, and due to the conditions of labor that drive our economy. In Body Horror, Moore explores the global toll of capitalism on women with thorough research, surprising humor, and ease—especially when examining her own experiences with disease and health care—to create a portrait of contemporary American culture that is gory and fascinating.
Anne Elizabeth Moore is an internationally renowned and bestselling cultural critic and comics journalist. Moore is a Fulbright scholar, UN Press Fellow, and USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Fellow, and teaches in the Visual & Critical Studies department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is a New York Times bestselling author and the founder of the Best American Comics series.
PRAISE FOR ANNE ELIZABETH MOORE:
“Anne Elizabeth Moore lets readers peer over her shoulder as she attempts the implausible. It turns out, the implausible is hard, and funny, and tragic, and illuminating, but once you sign up for the journey she never lets you look away. After reading what this woman accomplished in a few months, you might ask yourself some hard questions about how you spent last summer . . .”
—Glynn Washington, NPR’s Snap Judgment
"10000000000000000% punk rock.”
—Jacksonville Public Library
“Conversational, intellectually curious, and charmingly ragged, Unmarketable is an anti-corporate manifesto with a difference: It exudes raw coolness.”
—Mother Jones (on Unmarketable)
Offers “something distinctly more radical than merely protesting against consumerism: a total rejection of the competitive ethos that drives capitalist culture.”
—LA Times (on Unmarketable)
Congratulations, Anne! Pre-order Body Horror here, and stay tuned for updates about the book in the coming months.
