    DescriptionA meditation on the transforming nature of intimacy, stripped to its essentials in the relationship between patient and therapist.When she begins therapy for depression after breast cancer treatment, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick brings with her an extraordinarily open and critical mind, but also shyness about revealing herself and fear. Resisting easy responses to issues of dependence, vulnerability, desire, and mortality, she warily commits to a male therapist who shares little of her cultural and intellectual world.Although not without pain, their improvised relationship is as unexpectedly pleasurable as her writing is unconventional: Sedgwick combines dialogue, verse, and even her therapist's notes to explore her interior life - her responses to terminal illness, her close relationships to gay male friends, the risky terrain of sexual fantasies, and the grace of her engagement with Buddhism.
