Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0807070742, Hardcover)In the essays contained in Cravings: A Sensual Memoir, writer and performance artist Jyl Lynn Felman looks at desire not in the abstract, but in the particular: she considers a child's craving for a mother's attention, a daughter's craving for a specific piece of the family china, a lover's craving for her beloved. Felman contextualizes herself as a Jew, a feminist, a lesbian, and a person who grew up in Ohio. She examines how each of these selves experiences desire differently. Cravings is also a memoir of family life, of sibling rivalries that outlast childhood, and of the grief, regret, and anger that a daughter feels because of her parent's death.
