Publisher Comments:

Prepare to enter an erogenous zone.

Enlightenment and arousal await you inside with the best erotic writing of the year.

In The Best American Erotica 2002, Jane Smiley illustrates the singular escapism found in the gentlest caress, Maggie Estep relates the surprising sexual happenings in a detox clinic, Francesca Lia Block explores the aquatic fantasies haunting a surfer, and Ernie Conrick introduces a tennis star and sex symbol who surrenders to an unusual coach. In these twenty-five stories you will also find cutting-edge work from other luminaries and from the Internet, where the next wave of erotica has matured into some of the most enticing writing around.

Susie Bright's experienced eye and wide-open mind deliver exceptional writing that will satisfy all tastes and preferences — and the merely curious.
