Emily Ratajkowski has such a nice, succinct but impactful writing style, and I loved listening to the audiobook of her narration.
She discusses the commodification of her body throughout her career, as well as the abuse and mistreatment she has faced in the brutal modelling industry with nuance and clarity.
She touches astutely on the male gaze but fails to recognise her actions commodifying her own body? The author takes us on the start of that journey but she never quite reaches her destination.
This is also a book where the author constantly universalises her experience, demonstrating the limits of her analysis.
Like all of us, she has a complicated relationship with her mind and body and kudos for putting it down on paper like that.
Nuanced, fierce, and incisive, My Body marks the debut of a writer brimming with courage and intelligence.
