Award-winning journalist, war correspondent, philosopher and author Carolin Emcke is one of Germany’s most accomplished and admired intellectuals. One of the most determined voices denouncing hatred and speaking out in support of minority rights, How We Desire is her first book to be translated into English. Part memoir, part philosophy of sexuality, it is an hypnotic exploration of gender, desire and love from one of Europe’s most bracing minds.
