Erotic Reading That Satisfies Every Sexual Appetite

In the fourteenth edition of this seductive series, erotica's veterans and up-and-coming new writers join forces to explore how tantalizing crossing the so-called Lolita gap between youth and middle age can be.

Kathryn Harrison explores the story of a psychiatrist whose sexual affairs with a young client have an unexpected consequence; Dennis Cooper trails an extraordinary hustler working his older johns; and Jessica Cutler gives lessons on how a young woman can take down all the politicians in Washington with just the crook of her pretty little finger.

Guided by the genius of editor Susie Bright, The Best American Erotica 2007 will bring an exciting new climax to readers discovering that they love erotica — and to those already hooked.

Review:

"Like a good lover, Susie Bright's latest anthology of smart erotica surprises, shocks, warms, and makes the reader wet with page-turning anticipation. Climb into bed with this little devil and you may not want to get out." Lisa Beth Kovetz, author of The Tuesday Erotica Club

Review:

"It is the imbalance of collecting gorgeously sensuous writing with genre claptrap that is this anthology's weakness and its strength. The great writing shows the hackneyed slap-and-tickle prose in the worst possible light. But to exclude the latter would be to deny part of the diversity and proclivity of human sexuality. And Bright has always known that. Another year, another celebration of sex." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

The scorching contributions from Kathryn Harrison, Dennis Cooper, and Alicia Erian make this 14th installment of the grand dame of erotica anthologies the most enticing yet.
