"Searching, deeply humane.Our reactions to the stories Daniel Bergner recounts reveal as much about ourselves as they do about his oddly winning subjects." -- Jennifer Egan, bestselling author of THE KEEP
"Searching, deeply humane. . . . Our reactions to the stories Daniel Bergner recounts reveal as much about ourselves as they do about his oddly winning subjects."--Jennifer Egan, bestselling author of THE KEEP
"Daniel Bergner's characters live in erotic no-go zones where most of us would fear to tread. Their stories will sadden, enlighten, disturb, and move you--for they are completely, intimately human."--George Packer, New York Times bestselling author of THE ASSASSIN'S GATE
"In this fascinating book, Bergner, with a novelist's eye but a reporter's grit, examines amputee devotees and S&M fanatics without resorting to sensationalism."--Metro New York
"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
"Unsettling but riveting....what makes [this book] so powerful is that it's as much about desire and what's normal as it is an exploration of why we are the way we are, whether we like it or not."--New York Times Book Review
"Bergner does what science cannot: He illuminates peculiar longings. His method is at first descriptive and finally poetic. . . . Given the limitations of science, resonant journalism may be the best way to approach paraphilia, and Bergner's book has a musical quality."--Slate
"In carefully etched prose, Bergner unpacks the tightly twisted roots of desire, power seeking, self-hatred and theatricality that motivate his four pseudonymous subjects...Compassionate wisdom about dark needs."--Kirkus Reviews
"Girded with scientific data about the nature of sexual identity, The Other Side of Desire is a foray into extreme passion, in quest of the human soul."--O, The Oprah Magazine
