How do we come to be who we are sexually? How do we cope with the forces of desire? How can we understand the relationship between the transcendent and the physical, between the wish for love and the anarchy of the erotic? Award-winning writer Daniel Bergner looks for answers in the stories of four people whose unusual desires raise fascinating questions about the erotic differences between men and women and the nature of ecstasy itself.

Review quote

"Attentive, carefully controlled...[Bergner's] goal is empathy. He gives depth and shadow to his subjects' longing, never mocking, oversimplifying or vilifying."--Washington Post Book World
