“The essays in this voluptuous, multivarious volume comprise an essential compendium of female desire.” —Michelle Hart, Electric Literature

“In Wanting, writer-editors Margot Kahn and Kelly McMasters have collected 33 deeply intimate and thoughtful essays by women writers on the range of what constitutes desire . . . Wanting is at its best when it’s demonstrating the wide scope of what desire can mean, what forms it can take and what its object might be. Like the wide range of topics in this collection, the styles here are a potpourri of prose, wistful and tender one minute, razor-sharp and raw the next . . . Wanting is a wide-ranging collection about desire by women writers that is, like wanting itself, haunting, poignant, vicious, meditative and hopeful, all at once.” —Alice Martin, Shelf Awareness

“An impassioned anthology of women’s perspectives on desire . . . The wide-ranging essays reflect the diversity of their authors while sharing a captivating rawness and sincerity. The result is a striking and powerful compendium on the multifaceted nature of longing.” —Publishers Weekly

“A stunning collection that will change your life, Wanting is a deep excavation into desire’s endless forms and perspectives. No anthology has moved, thrilled, and expanded me as much as this one, delivering essay after essay that shifts desire’s ground from under its reader’s feet. True to its own subject, Wanting is sure to leave you hungry for more.” —Meredith Talusan, author of Fairest
