CCLaP Fridays: NSFW Files … the Book! Coming out next Monday (1/19/15)

nsfwcover400A second book in so many years … Many thanks to the good people at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography.  It was a blast writing these essays.  This time around there is also plenty of bonus material.  New essays on more books and a heavily expanded section on erotic graphic novels.

The runaway success of Fifty Shades of Grey made erotica mainstream, but can erotica really be written off as derivative fiction read by suburban moms for titillation? As Karl Wolff investigates in his new collection of essays, erotica belongs in a vast literary landscape, a genre that hides hidden treasures and rare delights. He covers erotica from The Song of Songs to Nic Kelman’s girls: A Paean; from Gynecocracy to Matriarchy: Freedom in Bondage; from City of Night to Naked Lunch; Story of the Eye to Story of O; and a bawdy bouquet of graphic novels. The NSFW Files includes essays on erotica written by a Nobel laureate, an outsider artist, a surrealist, and a French prisoner, among many more. Most important, the essay collection offers an answer to the question, “What dirty book should I read next?”

This book will be released on January 19th, 2015 in its full electronic and paper forms.  Click here for details.

Valentine’s Day is coming up and this book would be perfect for someone’s Naughty List.
