With an exciting combination of cream-of-the-crop classics and boundary-obliterating new contributions, the special fifteenth anniversary edition of Best American Erotica brings the heat like never before. Enhanced with author interviews that tell the real story behind the stories, and crowned with an unforgettable piece by 'the avatar of American erotica' (New York Times) herself, the 2008 instalment one of the most widely read sex anthologies is far and away the most enticing one to date. As it rapidly approaches an astonishing half a million copies in print, the Best American Erotica series is not resting on its laurels; it's just hitting its sultry stride. Thoroughly electrifying - and thrillingly eclectic - the 2008 edition promises to open new doors with its exhilarating, equal-opportunity approach to erotic writing. Straight or gay, dominant or submissive, romantic or sadistic, Bright's selections run the gamut - and push all the right buttons.
