The brilliant Claudia Cortese reviews Elizabeth Hall’s I Have Devoted My Life to the Clitoris (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2016): "I want to read Hall’s book on the subway, in a hallway, at a coffee shop—anywhere someone can see the jacket. 2016 may well be renamed the Year of the Pussy...."
"Hall can evoke in her reader’s mind questions about many things including: the limits and potentials of language, the indeterminacy and implications of sexual difference, and the culturally relative, socially constructed and situated nature of science and ethics. But Hall does this without the esoteric, overly-academic tone usually associated with these topics.... After all, it’s a book about fucking, and coming. It’s fun to read."
Interviews, even with the most amazing people, are still only as good as the interviewer. At Brooklyn Magazine, we all get lucky with the fab Marian Ryan, who is right at home with Elizabeth Hall and her debut, I Have Devoted My Life to the Clitoris (TS Press, 2016).
Elizabeth Hall, East Coast tour dates: Athens, GA, with Melissa Buzzeo, & TBD; Chicago, IL, with Erik Anderson and Phillip Williams; Montclaire, NJ; Brooklyn, NY, with Claire Donato, Amy King, Vi Khi Nao, and Laura Warman; Philadelphia, PA, with Gina Meyers, Cynthia Dewi Oka, and Nicole Steinberg....
Allie Rowbottom at The Rumpus writes a brilliant review of Elizabeth Hall's I Have Devoted My Life to the Clitoris (TS, 2016): "an orgy of information.... at once sexy and scientifically compelling ... rendered with graceful care, delivering in small bites an investigation of the clit that is simultaneously a meditation on the myriad ways in which smallness hides power."
"I am very much the sort of aggressively-obsessed-with-vaginas type who is drawn immediately to books like Elizabeth Hall’s I Have Devoted My Life to the Clitoris—but that doesn’t mean that you have to be someone with a deep love for clits to really, truly need to read this book. Because, I promise, you need to read this book."
