My first book, Vagina: A Re-Education, was published by Allen & Unwin in March 2019. It is available at Foyles, Amazon, Waterstones, Dubray Books and wherever you buy your books. Part memoir, part practical guide to the vagina, it sifts through myths and misinformation with the aim of empowering women with vital knowledge about their own bodies.
Grazia called it “a must read for all of us...thorough, fascinating and kind” and The Sunday Independent said it’s an “eye-opening read, it will make you angry at the torture and shame that has been inflicted on people with vaginas”. The Irish Times said it’s “superb… a fascinating, moving and sometimes enraging book”.
Emma Jane Unsworth says it is, “Shocking, brilliant, important. A fine addition to the feminist canon.”
Scarlett Curtis says: “Beautiful, well-written and fascinating - for the first time I feel like I PROPERLY understand my vagina!”
And from Olivia Sudjic: “Intelligent, searingly written, brave and generous, this book holds a mirror to many things. Far from a reductive take on genitalia, Enright tackles the stigma, lies, misinformation and squeamishness that persist in holding us all prisoner in a male-dominated world. It's the vagina's special power to make and remake that world for the better. Everyone, regardless of what lies beneath, should read it.”
The Pool’s Life Honestly book is available at all good bookshops and online at Foyles, Amazon and Waterstones. I have written several essays in this book and, as The Pool’s head of news and content from launch to autumn 2018, edited many more.
