Like Geoff Dyer's Out of Sheer Rage, Literary Seductions is written out of sheer passion. Exploring relationships between literary couples whose mutual obsession for writing resulted in equally explosive sexual relationships, Frances Wilson imbues astute literary criticism with raging hormones. For Antis Nin and Henry Miller, Laura Riding and Robert Graves, and W.B. and George Yeats, among others, bodies and books became interchangeable. Examining the explosive collision of reading, writing, and desire in these relationships, Literary Seductions is for anyone who's ever been seduced by a good read.
