Book Description

A vibrant exploration of our ability to smell, hear, taste, see and touch; a rare combination of science and poetry --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

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. (Literature--Classics & Contemporary)
