Publisher's Comments

Diane Ackerman's lusciously written grand tour of the realm of the senses includes conversations with an iceberg in Antarctica and a professional nose in New York, along with dissertations on kisses and tattoos, sadistic cuisine and the music played by the planet Earth.

"Delightful . . . gives the reader the richest possible feeling of the worlds the senses take in." --The New York Times
