Unique intellectual engagement …

… ‘Evolution of Desire,’ by Cynthia L. Haven - (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

Adopting the lively and accessible style of an investigative reporter, Haven looks to Girard’s formative experiences for an answer. The reader is along for the ride as she drives a rented Citroën through southern France, or pores over archival images and family photographs. Her research is rich in important and surprising details, and there are entertaining tidbits of juicy academic gossip along the way.
