Summary

On lust & longing brings two of Blanche D'Alpuget's prominent works together. When On Lust was first published it caused a media sensation: d'Alpuget wrote of a pillar of society who had molested children and of events that ended in mystery. She revealed all. On longing caused a similar sensation, for different reasons. D'Alpuget dared to write that she loved and had inspired love in a man already adored by the public. Here are the raw and timeless themes of the power and powerlessness inherent to lust, love, loss and death.
