Big Sex Little Death: A Memoir
AUTHOR: Susie Bright
PUBLISHER: Seal Press
From fearful Irish Catholic Girl Scout to gun-toting teenage revolutionary and finally the “The Avatar of American Erotica” (NYTimes), Bright’s life story is shaped as much by America’s sexual awakening as the national sexual landscape was altered by Bright herself.
In Big Sex Little Death, Bright introduces us to her influences and experiences, including her early involvement with notorious high school radicals The Red Tide as well as the magazine she co-founded in the 1980s, On Our Backs the first-ever erotic magazine created by women, which turned the lesbian and bisexual community upside down before it took the “straight” world by storm.
Susie Bright identifies as bisexual / sexually fluid.
