DEAD BLONDES AND BAD MOTHERS Monstrosity, Patriarchy, and the Fear of Female Power

by | Read by Chloe Cannon

Contemporary Culture • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Audiobook listeners will find lots to chew on in this compelling examination of the myths and belief systems that uphold patriarchy. Chloe Cannon's cadenced narration lends Doyle's work the gravitas it deserves. From nineteenth-century gothic novels and ancient Irish folklore to classic slasher movies and contemporary true-crime stories, Doyle explores how the myth of female monstrosity--and the fear of female power--functions in history and pop culture. Cannon's voice is full of emotion when the narrative veers into the personal but remains steady and objective during the more research-heavy sections. She especially excels at the lengthy quotes that appear throughout the audiobook, altering her delivery just enough to ensure that they add depth and clarity to Doyle's arguments.
