Description du produit

Revue de presse

Provocative and profoundly personal ... it's hard to overestimate the riskiness of these passages, their courage and their exquisite sensuality ... Unmastered is a giddily joyful book ... days after reading its images linger in the mind ... an elegant and uplifting journey (Olivia Laing Observer)

Unmastered is written with an honesty so defiantly pure it amounts to an act of cultural resistance (Adam Foulds, author of the Booker Prize-shortlisted, 'The Quickening Maze')

I am completely, utterly, overwhelmingly in love with Unmastered .... Beautiful, ferocious, acute, exceptional (Olivia Laing, author of 'To The River')

I think the highest compliment you can pay any book is that it is unafraid. Angel's fiercely intelligent and moving memoir of sexuality and desire is a challenging, vital work (Sam Byers, Best Books of 2012 Book Keeping)

A moving and memorable read (Huffington Post Books of 2013)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Unmastered is a new kind of book that allows us to think afresh about sex and desire. Incisive, moving, and lyrical, it opens up a larger space for the exploration of feelings that can be difficult to express. Touching on experiences of desire and pleasure, as well as grief and pain, the book probes the porousness between masculine and feminine, thought and sensation, self and culture, power and pliancy. Katherine Angel reflects on the history of her own feelings, on her encounters and beliefs, and shows how our lives can be shaped by sexuality and feminism; by the words we use, and the stories we tell. The result is a book letting light into places that are often dark and constrained - a searching, erotic work that shifts in meaning and resonance even as it is read.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 This is not a novel-length piece. More like a long essay. 15 juin 2013

Although I appreciate the author's observations on how our culture views female sexuality, by no stretch of the imagination is the digital version of this work worth $11.00. This is more like a long magazine article. It took me 90 minutes to read. As a previous reviewer mentioned, most of the length is blank spacing. Why any editor or publisher thought this was a good idea, I don't know. I returned my order.

This short "book" is mostly filler - blank and one sentence pages. There is no structure to speak of. There are a few choppy, disjointed words on sex/desire. It is not clear as to what one is to take away from this mostly empty "book." For some, apparently quite a bit, if they are to be believed.

After reading a rave review from Tracy Clark-Flory at Salon, I decided to order "Unmastered." When my package arrived I simply could not believe my eyes as I leafed through the book and saw pages upon pages "filled" with a sentence or two. The excerpts I'd seen were poetic and insightful--I did not expect them to be strewn around the book without a narrative to string them together. This book reads like a Twitter feed and is quite simply a waste of paper. I wish I'd read the reviews before ordering ...DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

You may reasonably believe that memoirs are meant to tell a story of some kind. I, for example, hold this belief. UNMASTERED, unfortunately, does not express this belief. It's not really a story so much as a pile of vignettes that one might expect of a sophomore with her first blog. There is no real narrative and hence no possibility of narrative coherence. Many of the pages are single sentences surrounded by an expanse of ivory page. They seem designed to make you ask, "Why did I pay for this?" When I asked the same question, I realized there is no reason and returned the book. Thank you, Amazon, for your generous return policy.

A strategy of deliberate vagueness and random observation may have been original when Anais Nin was writing. It's not interesting anymore.

I didn't care for the author's writing style, or the fact that the book had little substance. The writing was somewhat abstract and poetic, and never seemed to impart much of anything worthwhile.
