Every Kind of Wanting

This is a novel about how we matter to each other, and why, and to what end. At its center is the nervy and undeniable Lina—so lovely and yet so wounded—who lives out her life at the juncture of pain and desire. It is a labyrinthine story, complex, recursive, and crafted around the unflinchingly intimate honesty that marks everything Gina Frangello writes. What a brutal book. What a beautiful book."
::JILL ALEXANDER ESSBAUM, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF HAUSFRAU

No one, NO ONE, captures the urgency and heartbreak of the contemporary family, in all its complexity, better than Gina Frangello. Gorgeously written, sharply observed, Every Kind of Wanting is the literary equivalent of a hand grenade. I loved it.”
::JOANNA RAKOFF, AUTHOR OF MY SALINGER YEAR

In Every Kind of Wanting, Gina Frangello unspools an exquisitely layered story about desire that takes us to astonishing heights and necessary depths. In a novel that is sensual, shocking, and wise, she delivers truth after truth about lust—whether for a lover, for a baby, for (in)fidelity, for hidden meaning, or, as she so powerfully redefines it, for love.”
