The Word "Desire" (Lannan Selection)
The twelve startlingly original stories about erotic situations collected in "The Word Desire" are the best opportunity yet for adventurous readers to discover the fiction of Rikki Ducornet. Always at ease with the sensuous, perverse and eccentric aspects of human nature, Ducornet turns her attention in this collection to the most volatile and easily misunderstood emotion, desire.
Each of these stories centers on a pivotal erotic moment in the lives of the men and women who narrate them, exploring the many strange reverberations that occur when desire is present whether repressed or acted upon.
