"Lust" In "Lust" by Susan Minot, the narrator which is a young fifteen to sixteen year old girl is starving for love and attention. In the beginning of this story she talks of having sex as if she enjoys every moment of it. Later on in the story she sees herself as invisible, nearly transparent. This girl has multiple partners. Each time she is starting to feel less and less worthless. It is apparent that she is lacking a lot of attention from her parents. In particular, her father. This could explain the strong desire to please a male figure.
