On Lust and On Longing together for the first time.

When On Lust was first published it caused a media sensation: Blanche d'Alpuget wrote of a pillar of society who had molested children and of events that ended in mystery. Now she reveals all.

On Longing caused a similar sensation, for different reasons. D'Alpuget dared to write that she loved and had inspired love in a man already adored by the public.

Here are the raw and timeless themes of the power and powerlessness inherent to lust, love, loss and death.
