In this moving memoir Jonathan Dollimore recounts a life dedicated to understanding the delight and disorder of human desire. He writes candidly about his teenage attraction to risk and danger; of wounding motorcycle crashes and lucky escapes; of sexual curiosity as a flight from boredom; of suicidal depression and sexual ecstasy, of his discovery of love and literature and his adventures cruising in the gay subcultures of late twentieth-century New York, Brighton, and Sydney.
For more than thirty years Dollimore has been one of contemporary culture’s most influential critics of politics, literature, and sexuality. Desire: A Memoir is a hybrid of autobiography, meditation, and philosophy that explores the existential sources of his writing. Effortlessly blending the tragic and comic, Dollimore’s unique voice relates a life haunted and torn by loss, and the at once intensely personal yet universal experience of suffering and longing.
