"Wounds of Passion is a memoir about writing, love, and sexuality. With her customary boldness and insight, bell hooks critically reflects on the impact of birth control and the women's movement on our lives. She explores the way her sexuality is influenced by her radical political consciousness. Resisting the notion that love and writing don't mix, she begins a fifteen-year relationship with a gifted poet and scholar, who inspires and encourages her. Writing the acclaimed book Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism at the age of nineteen, she begins to emerge as a brilliant social critic and public intellectual. Wounds of Passion describes a woman's struggle to devote herself to writing, sharing the difficulties, the triumphs, the pleasure, and the danger. Eloquent and powerful, this book lets us see the ways one woman writer works to find her voice while creating a love relationship based on feminist thinking. With courage and wisdom she reveals intimate details and provocative ideas, offering an illuminating vision of a writer's life."--BOOK JACKET… (mais)

completely agree that there are beautiful gems of thoughts in here, but i wasn't gripped by its entirety. the chapter towards the end about death was the hard-hitter for me and really lovely, as well as the chapter mentioning overconsumption and our need to possess to try to fill some void.

"Understanding that death is always with us can serve as the faithful reminder that the time to do what we feel called to do is always now and not in some distant and unimagined future."

This was a bit of a heavier read for me as some topics did hit a little close to home but with more reason why this is a must-read. Hooks talks about the lack of love in our society and how better it would be if we learned to make love a priority in everyday life. Love is something that has been kept secret because of its powers of inciting change. Hooks teaches us that we all deserve to be loved and to show love to others.
