A captivating collection of essays, Desire delves headfirst into its subject matter and explores the complexity of desire with essays about the things women want, crave, lust after, and covet. An extraordinary group of writers tackle difficult and taboo subjects, from Debra Magpie Earling's desire to hurt someone, to New York Times writer S. S. Fair's less than diminishing sensual and sexual desire, despite her increasing age, to Julia Serano's strong emotional impulse to be a woman before she decided to transition from male to female. Many of these essayists examine the feelings and experiences which surround the things they want but can'tor shouldn'thave. The reasons such desires are taboo are often personal and range from social conventions and religious teachings to more concrete laws and rules. Desire makes the private public and illuminates the rich and varied desires women have. "
