I listened to this audio book in one long session while driving from Atlanta back to Nebraska. I'm a long time listener to her "In Bed With Susie Bright" series here on Audible so it was great hearing more of her background. Susie read sections of the book on her show so I was ready to hear the whole thing.
Susie's memoir very pleasantly occupied 12 hours of the trip but I wish it was longer. First because the drive was longer than 12 hours and I didn't have another audio book to listen to. Second because I felt there were gaps in the story and areas I wish were fleshed out more.
If you like "Big Sex Little Death" I recommend two other Susie Bright books, Sexual Reality and Mommy's Little Girl, I recently discovered here on Audible. They fill in some the gaps in the memoir and enhance the Susie Bright story.
I'm not sure how to categorize this book so won't even try. It's enough to say that I enjoyed it. The sections about Lynnie were my favorite. They gave me a glimpse into a society I've never really had contact with in my life. But I've known people like Lynnie so found it fascinating.
This book should really be ready in conjunction with her memoir "Big Sex Little Death" and "Mommy's Little Girl: Susie Bright on Sex, Motherhood, Porn and Cherry Pie" (obviously another book hard to categorize). I've listened to her "In Bed With Susie Bright" series here on Audible for years so found it interesting to discover more os her "backstory" through these other books.
although I feel like this book might be difficult to understand if you haven't been submerged in queer culture of any of the major metros in the US, ie, san francisco, for instance, I think the above average sophisticate can take much meaningful insight from it. I highly recommend going audiobook on this one.
