In M.S. Harkness weaves in and out of non-relationships, drug dealing, and sex work—all with the subtlety of a blunt ax! She constantly searches for security and fulfillment, but it is always just beyond her reach. "Desperate Pleasures" is a young woman's fearless autobiographical account of difficult relationships set against a backdrop of trauma and abuse. Uncomfortably close-up, filled with dark humor, Desperate Pleasures is an unrelenting read and M.S. Harkness’ best work to date.
