A Natural History of the Senses

Diane Ackerman, Author Vintage Books USA $15.95 (352p) ISBN 978-0-679-73566-3
Physiology and philosophy mesh in this poetic investigation of the five senses; essays explore synesthesia, food taboos, kissing and the power and diversity of music. ``Rooted in science, enlivened by her own convincing sense of wonder, Ackerman's essays awaken us to a fresh awareness,'' said PW.
