Author Heidi Julavits discusses her book "The Uses of Enchantment" as part of the Authors@Google series.

"The Uses of Enchantment" weaves a spell in which the reader sees how the extraordinary power of a young woman's sexuality, and the desire to wield it, have a devastating effect on all involved. The riveting cat-and-mouse power games between doctor and patient, and between abductor and abductee, are gradually, dreamily revealed, along with the truth about what actually happened in 1985. Heidi Julavits is in full command of her considerable gifts and has crafted a dazzling narrative sure to garner her further acclaim as one of the best novelists working today.

This event took place January 25, 2008 at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA.
