Tinkle Digest No. 39: Desiring in the Real Paperback – 1 June 1992
"This book is refreshing in that it pointedly critiques the erasure of bisexual desire in psychoanalytic texts and firmly inscribes bisexuality as an identity and practice in clinical theory. Rapoport’s cogent theoretical formulations and vivid clinical examples make it clear that psychoanalysis has not succeeded in theorizing bisexuals out of existence." Lynne Layton, Harvard Medical School, past editor of Psychoanalysis, Culture and Society
"Rapoport eloquently asks us to consider the centrality of bisexuality to our theoretical knowledges – and lived experiences – of the sexual, the erotic, the intimate. Long misunderstood, bisexuality is both a potential out of which narrower experiences of sexuality and gender are conditioned and a particular form of desire can take. What kind of healing may occur if we recognize a bi-erotic subjectivity? Desiring will transform how we understand not just bisexuality but sex, sexuality, and gender." Jonathan Alexander, Chancellor’s Professor of English and of Gender and Sexuality, UC, Irvine
"In this compelling book, Rapoport addresses the complicated meeting point between sex, gender, identity and subjectivity through the question of bisexuality. The book offers an important critique of identitarian approaches to sexuality while also insisting on a discourse of bisexuality that accounts for its subjective experience and representation. Rapoport places bisexuality – a signifier for unknowability – at the centre of interdisciplinary discussion in ways that widen its clinical and theoretical scope without settling its meaning." Oren Gozlan, PsyD, ABPP, author of Transsexuality and the Art of Transitioning: A Lacanian Perspective
"An exciting and sophisticated reassessment of the foundational psychoanalytic concept of bisexuality. Rapoport opens up new horizons, theoretical and clinical, of how psychoanalysis might revision bisexual subjectivity. A necessary and timely contribution." Celia Brickman, PhD, author of Race in Psychoanalysis
