The Word 'Desire'
Praise For The Word 'Desire'…
"She's a magic sensualist, a writer's writer, a master of language--a unique voice."--Amy Tan
"These stories are like fine petit point or old grosgrain ribbon. Their beauty is in their detail and infinitesimal surprises. Exotic and desire are here intwined."--Carolyn See, The Washington Post Book World
"A body of work lush with enchantments. The Word "Desire," like the wonderful cabinets Ducornet often writes about, has many compartments, and quite a few of them contain unadulterated treasures."--The Village Voice Literary Supplement
"Beyond language and the kindling of desire, there is another reason to read Ducornet: wisdom."--Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times
Discerning readers and reviewers greeted the publication of The Word "Desire" as a cause for celebration. Now in paperback, an ever wider audience can discover why Rikki Ducornet has been called "linguistically explosive . . . one of the most interesting American writers around" --The Nation
