In the lyric tradition of Anaïs Nin, Rumi and Lady Murasaki, award-winning poet Diana Raab celebrates eros. She will read of carnal desire and the transcendence of sexual ecstasy at bookstore venues in and around Santa Barbara. Books will be sold and signed.
These accessible poems will be treasured by both men and women of all ages. In them, Raab grapples with universal themes as she voices the pain of loneliness and explores the heart’s yearning for love and sexual ecstasy.
A passionate journey through private moments, Raab’s poems are alive, titillating, and seductive as they traverse the physical and emotional complexity of love. In the process, they help readers navigate the risks of intimacy with the insight that every experience—whether painful, joyful or out of the ordinary—enriches our lives.
For all their psychological richness, the simplicity of the poems will resonate and inspire readers of all walks of life. LUST is a book that will live on your bedside table. A perfect Valentine’s Day gift, it is a book readers will turn to again and again.
