“An eloquent witness” with “a journalist's eye for the telling moment” (The New Yorker), Daniel Bergner is a contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine. His works of nonfiction include The Other Side of Desire, which probed the nature of ecstasy and sexual identity; In the Land of Magic Soldiers, a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year, which portrayed a world of beauty, horror, and redemption in war-ravaged Sierra Leone and received an Overseas Press Club Award; and God of the Rodeo, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year about an annual convict rodeo at a maximum-security penitentiary in Louisiana. Bergner’s new book What Do Women Want? debunks popularized myths about female lust, painting an unprecedented—possibly anarchic—portrait of “the fairer sex.”
