I so enjoyed Susie Bright's memoir made extra special through her narration of it. Susie unfolds the nuances of many of her most significant relationships and the course of her unconventional coming of age, her education (the richest parts taking place outside of actual school), and the development of her life's work. Her story provides insight into significant but under-documented aspects of grassroots history - particularly her experiences as a young labor movement activist and as a feminist pornographer. Susie has provided her story with clarity, compassion, tremendous insight and inspiration. She has really chosen to live a life worth living and done work worth doing and she is able to share this with us through her masterful craft. Susie stayed focused in this volume and it feels to me that there is even more to her story that we may get to read about in a future volume. I would love to have more from where this came from!
I wasn't bored with any of these stories like many of the reviewers were. In fact there were a few that now are still memorable, but only as images. Makes me think it's time for a second listen (my first was right after it was released) . I'm fairly new to the genre, and don't know what others may be looking for in the book -- I found this no more titillating than some SF short story collections. It is, rather, a series of sexually charged intimate short stories. They go off each in their own, sometimes odd, directions. None the direction my fantasies lead, but then, they did stimulate the imagination.
