Desire in Seven VoicesBook - 1999
"When do you follow your desire?" writers were asked. "When do you censor it? When is it a force to be trusted, and when do you become suspicious? When is it a source of power, and when a source of distress?" The answers fill this deliciously daring, eloquent book. Whether describing the satisfactions of a long-term relationship or the thrill of the first time with someone new, secret crushes or unabashed attractions, these writers -- including Shani Mootoo and Carol Shields -- are working at the top of their form. Sometimes subtle, sometimes raunchy, but always provocative, these essays challenge prevailing myths about women, love, and lust.
