Israel: New Must Read Book

Israeli blogger Danya Ruttenberg says Virgin: The Untouched History is the next must read book! The book, which even has its own blog, has “lots of commentary about virginity-related issues in the contemporary world (think honor killings, abstinence education, Virgin Mary sightings, etc)” says the blogger.


  • How nice to see this in Global Voices! A few corrections, though: the Israeli blogger’s name is Danya Ruttenberg, and the title of my book is actually Virgin: The Untouched History.

    It’s being published by Bloomsbury and will be distributed in English starting March 20; a Japanese edition is also in the works with other non-English editions still being negotiated.

  • Thank you for pointing out the corrections! Slipped them in there just to check whether people are reading or not!!
