'Full of wisdom and insight ... I cannot recommend it enough' Julia Samuel

'Brilliant' Katy Hessel

'Fascinating ... a valuable contribution to a wider debate about how women are permitted to own and express their desires' Guardian

From a young bride-to-be struggling to accept her sexuality, to a mother grappling with questions of identity and belonging, and a pensioner falling in love for the first time, What Women Want is an enthralling and deeply intimate examination of womanhood.

With empathy and bravery, psychotherapist Maxine Mei-Fung Chung delves into what makes us who we are. Through her conversations with her patients, she lays bare our fears, our secrets, our wants, and ultimately, our capacity for healing.

To desire is an action. This extraordinary book liberates and empowers us to claim what we truly want.
This debut from a leading psychotherapist is an enthralling, intersectional investigation of female desire * Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller * I couldn't stop thinking about these women's stories. The best book on female desire and longing since Three Women * Abigail Bergstrom, author of What a Shame * Maxine's book is insightful, tender and brilliant. I am enraptured by these women's stories. * Katy Hessel, Sunday Times Bestselling author of The Story of Art without Men * A rich and intimate examination of female desire, Maxine's book is full of wisdom and insight. I cannot recommend it enough * Julia Samuel * A compelling read * Sally Huband *
