In "Mayela One Day in 1989" an exotic and vivacious woman leads a bewitched man through one wild night in El Paso and into a gay bar where she tests the limits of her seductive powers, In "Bottoms" a writer struggles to turn in a review of an erotic novel on deadline while fending off the advances of a married Amazon-like woman he has met at his community pool." "Woodcuts of Women is a collection by one of America's foremost fiction writers."--BOOK JACKET.
