Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twelve years after it was first published, The Joy of Writing Sex remains the classic writers resource on creating compelling sex scenes. Elizabeth Benedict covers all the issues, from the first time, to married sex and adultery, to sex in the age of AIDS.

Her instruction, supported with examples from the works of today's most respected writers—among them, Dorothy Allison, Russell Banks, Alan Hollinghurst, Joyce Carol Oates, Carol Shields, and John Updike—focuses on crafting believable sex scenes that hinge on freshness of character, dialogue, mood, and plot.

In this revised edition, Benedict addresses the latest sexual revolution, intimacy on the Internet; adds new interviews with Edmund White, Darren Strauss, Stephen McCauley, and other writers; and updates her selections to include examples from the best fiction of the past few years.

Synopsis:

For the first time in paperback comes the definitive book on writing sex in fiction that is a "wonderful and handy compendium on how to write--and have fun with--sex" (Carolyn See).
