Summary:

With the virtuosic synthesis of memoir, criticism, and journalism for which she has become known, Leslie Jamison offers listeners fourteen new essays that are by turns ecstatic, searching, staggering, and wise. In its kaleidoscopic sweep, the audiobook creates a profound exploration of the oceanic depths of longing and the reverberations of obsession. Among Jamison's subjects are 52 Blue, deemed 'the loneliest whale in the world;' the eerie past-life memories of children; the devoted citizens of an online world called Second Life; the haunted landscape of the Sri Lankan Civil War; and an entire museum dedicated to the relics of broken relationships. Jamison follows these examinations to more personal reckonings, with elusive men and ruptured romances, with marriage and maternity, in essays about eloping in Las Vegas, becoming a stepmother, and giving birth.
