NYC Launch Event for In Search of Pure Lust By Lise Weil

What is desire? How is it shaped by the lust we feel, the literature we read, our friends and family, our politics, our religious beliefs? What does it reveal about our identity? Despite the complexity of desire, Lise Weil goes there, exploring these very questions through the lens of her coming out and coming of age in late seventies and eighties America. Ultimately her journey leads her to a Zen Buddhist practice and to something that looks a lot like love.
