Go The Way Your Blood Beats by Michael Amherst


Go The Way Your Blood Beats - On Truth, Bisexuality and Desire


Winner of the 2019 Stonewall Book Award—Israel Fishman Non-Fiction Book Award


Using bisexuality as a frame, Go the Way Your Blood Beats questions the division of sexuality into straight and gay, in a timely exploration of the complex histories and psychologies of human desire.


A challenge to the idea that sexuality can either ever be fully known or neatly categorised, it is a meditation on desire’s unknowability. Interwoven with anonymous addresses to past loves – the sex of whom remain obscure – the book demonstrates the universalism of human desire.


Part essay, part memoir, part love letter, Go the Way Your Blood Beats asks us to see desire and sexuality as analogous with art – a mysterious, creative force.
