Here is the cover of the German version of my book, Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism: And Other Arguments for Economic Independence. I am sad that they didn’t include the subtitle, but it does make the cover look much cleaner and less cluttered. It’s out on October 27, 2019!
So happy to be next to Princess Leia, and in the company of Rebecca Solnit and Blair Imani.
Thanks so much to Sophia Benoit for asking such great questions.
One of my colleagues in the UK snapped this photo in the bookshop of Tate Modern. So happy to be so close to the words of Naomi Klein.
Just received a hard copy of the March/April issue of the Bulgarian women’s magazine, Zhenata Dnes. They included a translation of a review of Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism and mentioned it on the cover!
I am so thrilled and honored that Baroness Rosie Boycott took the time to write such a thoughtful review essay of my book and Virginia Nicholson’s for the weekend edition of the Financial Times. It is wonderful when someone really understands your work within a wider context.
I’d missed this back in January when it first appeared, but I have to say, as a long time comic fan, it is really thrilling to see one’s name in a speech bubble (in the upper right hand corner). Thanks very much to the talented Anya Davidson!
An great crowd in SoHo for Valentine’s Day.
I was so please to have had the opportunity to speak with Neil Denny on the Little Atoms podcast. He asked such thoughtful and insightful questions, and i love the fact that he allows long-winded academics like me to waffle on when necessary. I really do need to learn how to speak in sound byte one of these days…
Thanks so much to Dan Snow for reaching out to me to be a guest on his wonderful History Hit podcast. I had so much fun during this conversation; Dan asked the most thoughtful and insightful questions.
Heartfelt gratitude to Rebecca Mead! She really understood what I was trying to do with this book. I couldn’t be more thrilled with this engages and rigorous review.
“The virtue of Ghodsee’s smart, accessible book is that it illustrates how it might be possible for a woman — or, for that matter, a man — to have an entirely different structural relationship to something as fundamental as sex, or health.”
