A Rollicking Memoir

The godmother of erotica, Susie Bright, looks back at three slices of life—childhood, teenage years and adulthood—in this vibrant memoir. Big Sex Little Death ($24.95; amazon.com) chronicles the summer Bright spent at Commie camp, the lessons she learned selling vibrators to nuns and the challenges of launching the first women-run erotica magazine. She also highlights the distinct nature of the sexpert: “Sex radicals tend to be excellent at hospice care, at the rites of the dying, at memoires that leave legacies. Perhaps because we are blunt about sex, we’re not so afraid of death’s taboo either.”
