I have several erotica collections, and this is my favorite: bold, unpredictable, and dealing with very, very risky territory (let me give you a hint: the theme is "youth"). From beginning (a retelling of the Genesis myth) to end (a delectable feminist's nightmare), this volume packs more controversy than you thought you would be able to find in a single volume. It made me a fan of the Best American Erotica series. You will be aroused and shocked-and shocked to be aroused. Go straight to Dennis Cooper's excerpt from The Sluts and Trebor Healey's "The Pancake Circus" and you will understand what pushing the limits means.
