Author(s): ANGEL KATHERINE
Unmasteredinvites us to think afresh about desire. As Katherine Angel reflects on the history of her own feelings, on her encounters and beliefs, she touches on on experiences of desire and pleasure, as well as grief and pain, probing the porousness between masculine and feminine, thought and sensation, self and culture, power and pliancy.
The result is a book letting light into places that are often dark and constrained - a searching, erotic work that shows how we are shaped by sexuality, and by the stories we tell.
