Pressestimmen"Kelsky insightfully treats desire as a complicated and contradictory complex, something inspired as much by pragmatic as erotic concerns. The narratives she offers are rich and impressive and her skills as a fieldworker as well as command of the ethnographic scene in Japan are striking. This is a compelling, engaging, and important work."--Anne Allison, author of "Nightwork: Sexuality, Pleasure, and Corporate Masculinity in a Tokyo Hostess Club"
