Reviews and Endorsements

'Engaging, stimulating, and informing, this essential collection of essays takes us into provocative territory, where longing and desire are nuanced and distinguished. The private and the public, the mundane and the forbidden, along with the neglected, are evocatively and memorably addressed, clinically and theoretically.'
- Frances Sommer Anderson, PhD, Editor, Body to Body: Beyond the Talking Cure

'There is perhaps no better way to think about being human than to think about what it means to desire. And there is no better way to learn about how contemporary psychoanalysts and psychotherapists are working than to read what they are saying about desire. In this volume, a remarkable group of authors address the theme of desire from a wide range of clinical and theoretical perspectives. This is a book that will be of interest to anybody who cares about the way we experience and express our deepest longings, and that of course means that it will be of interest to anybody, both within and outside the mental health profession.'
- Jay Greenberg, PhD, Training and Supervising Analyst, William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and Psychology
