The Best American Erotica 2005by Susie Bright
Synopses & Reviews
Full of literary star power and with absolutely nothing out of bounds, these steamy short stories pack a wallop for every sexual taste.
Susie Bright is the fearless boundary crosser of contemporary erotica, and The Best American Erotica 2005 features stories of unprecedented literary pedigree and a stunning breadth of imagination.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Jane Smiley details a beautiful erotic interlude in an otherwise sordid real estate deal; Mary Gaitskill celebrates the unexpected ardor of one middle-aged couple; Steve Almond reminisces about the best one-man/three-girl Ecstasy party ever; Nelson George recounts the erotic escapades that befall a young man who accompanies a celebrity athlete when he picks up a gaggle of girls; and Carol Queen explores the joys of making love with summer fruit. Readers will also thrill to the year's most stellar stories from every imaginable erotic genre.
The class of The Best American Erotica 2005 is changing the rules about writing about sex. It's no longer pulp fiction: it's must-read literature showcasing the best writing around, all packed into the year's sexiest anthology.
"Thirteenth dip by sexologist Bright into the big pool of Americans groping for skin under the surface of society and finding plenty of strong feelings and slick flesh....A tasteful pillow book." Kirkus Reviews
In keeping with her mission to bring the latest trends in erotica to a wide audience, Best American Erotica 2005 mixes stories by big marquee names such as Jane Smiley and Mary Gaitskill with authors who are just emerging from the underground/small press erotica scene. Best American Erotica 2005 is full of surprises — it might even be shocking.
