This daring, funny, sometimes surprising and highly literate collection showcases some of Canada's finest women writers: Lorna Crozier, Dionne Brand, Bonnie Burnard, Evelyn Lau, Shani Mootoo, Susan Musgrave and Carol Shields.

This gorgeous little book challenges prevailing myths about women and love, women and lust, women and words. "When do you follow your desire?" writers were asked. "When do you censor it? When is it a source of power, and when a source of distress?"

Whether writing about the satisfactions of a long-term relationship or the thrill of the first time with somebody new, about secret crushes or openly declared attraction, about desire that is taboo or desire that is tender abd familiar, the award winning contributors to Desire in Seven Voices are working at the top of their form. Their frank revelations are food for thought and a reader's delight.
