Abstract:

From a fearful Irish Catholic Girl Scout to gun-toting teenage revolutionary--and finally the "Avatar of American Erotica" (NY Times)--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 cofounded 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. Big sex little death is an explosive yet intimate memoir that's pure Susie: bold, free-spirited, unpredictable--larger than life, yet utterly true to life.
