1 Slung, Michele B. (editor) Slow Hand : Women Writing Erotica

A great gift for mother's Day! Great book. Solid, like new. 228 pp. From Publishers Weekly Stories about sex can have many goals, but erotica's prime raison d'etre is always to provoke "strong skin responses," in Slung's ( I Shudder at Your Touch ) apt phrase. This collection of 19 stories by and for women offers enough variety to stimulate virtually any taste. Each with a brief editor's foreword and author's note, the entries explore many nuances of sexuality, more than a few positions and some of the most daunting sexual issues there are. Represented are bisexuality, voyeurism, the line between violence and desired force ("to be made to do what I wanted to do," observes the woman narrating Lisa Tuttle's "The Story of No"), sex for love and sex for sex. The stories place context on a par with action, a different recipe than that of most erotica directed toward men. As reading experiences, some tales fare better than others. Carole Maso's "The American Woman in the Chinese Hat" attempts "an homage to . . . Robbe-Grillet, and the French Nouveau roman," while such stories as "Oh, Brother," by Bea Wilder, seem only recollections of sexual memories. Many readers will welcome the realism that informs most of these tales: protagonists who are aging, afraid, confused or aggressive, and who admit their failings as readily as they proclaim their desires.Hard Cover.
