About the book:
Every day, heinous acts are perpetrated on women's bodies in this political economy—whether for entertainment, in the guise of medicine, or due to the conditions of labor that propel consumerism. InBody Horror: Capitalism, Fear, Misogyny, Jokes,award-winning journalist and Fulbright scholar Anne Elizabeth Moore explores the global toll of capitalism on women with thorough research and surprising humor. The essays range from probing journalistic investigations, such as Moore’s reporting on the labor conditions of the Cambodian garment industry, to the uncomfortably personal, as when Moore, who suffers from several autoimmune disorders, examines her experiences seeking care and community in the increasingly complicated (and problematic) American healthcare system. Featuring illustrations by Xander Marro,Body Horroris a fascinating and revealing portrait of the gore of contemporary American culture and politics.

"Probing her own experiences with disease and health care, Anne Elizabeth Moore offers scalpel-sharp insight into the ways women's bodies are subject to unspeakable horrors under capitalism."
—Chicago Tribune
"Sharp, shocking, and darkly funny, the essays in [Body Horror] ... expose the twisted logic at the core of Western capitalism and our stunted understanding of both its violence and the illnesses it breeds ...Brainy and historically informed, this collection is less a rallying cry or a bitter diatribe than a series of irreverent and ruthlessly accurate jabs at a culture that is slowly devouring us."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
