Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves by Serena Anderlini-D'Onofrio
This poignant fictionalized memoir chronicles the evolution of a remarkable life in progress. Serena Anderlini-D'Onofrio, a foremost advocate of bisexual and polyamorous lovestyles, takes readers along on her bold journeys away from the mainstream and into the realm of erotic self discovery. In the process, she offers her irreverent critiques of society, education, theory, sexuality, and epistemology. This reader-friendly book describes the author's early life in Italy in the politically charged 1960s and 1970s and her time in California in the 1980s and 1990s; her journey over the treacherous path from graduate student to educator; and from a "straight" and monogamous early adulthood to her emergence as a person at all times prepared to defy convention for the sake of integrity--a writer and woman well worth getting to know! As essential reader in any progressive course and a fun read for everyone.
