Paradise Lust Summary


Paradise Lust: Searching for the Garden of Eden by Brook Wilensky-Lanford

Praise for Paradise Lust

"A pleasure. Wilensky-Lanford tackles her subject with an appealing mix of serious research and tongue-in-cheek humor. Neither too academic nor too whimsical, the storytelling in Paradise Lust is often irresistible."--The New York Times

"Dense, absorbing... [Wilensky-Lanford's] interest in her subject is deep, her narrative is expertly layered, and her interpretations of the seekers' motives are more than convincing." -- Wall Street Journal

"An entertaining history... a thoroughly researched and engaging examination of faith's role in our lives. This is Wilensky-Lanford's first book, and it bodes well for her of-this-world future." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Paradise Lust takes us on a fascinating journey - and one that sheds much light on the meaning of biblical literalism. I won't tell you whether or not she finds Eden, but she did find a great topic." -- A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically

"A gloriously researched, pluckily written historical and anecdotal assay of humankind's age-old quixotic quest for the exact location of the Biblical garden." -- Elle

"Witty and exhaustively researched" -- Associated Press

"A charming, century-spanning journey about the search for the Garden of Eden... This is truly a fascinating read."--Carol Ann Strahl, Buffalo Rising
