The Best American Erotica, Volume 2: Slow Dance on the Fault Line | [Susie Bright, J. Maynard, Marianna Beck]

The Best American Erotica, Volume 2: Slow Dance on the Fault Line

In this collection, Broadway superstar Alan Cumming tells of the deep knowing offered by one stranger to another after casual sex; in science-fiction hotshot Geoffrey Landis' bawdy fairy tale, we learn about the very first penis; Touré's breathless prose poem sets us up with an evening's worth of erotic visitors; and in Jerry Stahl's story, a man recalls his boyhood fascination with his mother's friends and their elaborate undergarments.

    "Not my erotica"

    Unfortunately I downloaded the wrong genre of erotic fiction however there where some short stories that stirred an emotion. Even though it was the wrong genre I still wanted to finish the book

    "absloute rubbish good thing it was free"
    What disappointed you about The Best American Erotica 1994 (Unabridged Selections)?

    I have never heard such rubbish in my life the intro done by whoever was pathetic.. putting a dramatic stress on rude words does not make it erotic


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    absolutely not


    What character would you cut from The Best American Erotica 1994 (Unabridged Selections)?

    all of it


    Any additional comments?

    I decided to try a couple of free books to see f it was worth becoming a member.. I have to say if this is the standard of books on audible, they will get nothing from me. I am not even going to download the second book waiting in my account
