What the Fuck: The Avant-Porn Anthology

Front Cover
Soft Skull Press, 2001 - Fiction - 225 pages
0 Reviews
Experimental Erotica From Some Of The Best-Known Names In Modern Literature; Shunning the notion that erotic literature is hastily created thrown-away words and sentences, a new literary, experimental aesthetic pervades this anthology. The writers here show that human sexuality is broad, and the range of desire is exciting and vast. Sex is as vital as food, politics, and conflict. The Avant Pornographers are not afraid to explore and exploit the nature of postmodern human sexuality in the 21st Century, with their own brand of twists and curves. Like Mirrorshades was to cyberpunk and Avant Pop was to avant pop, What The Fuck will be a new brand of post-pomo sexualised fiction. Contributors include William T Vollmann, one of the most important writers of the 1990s; leading sci-fi writer Don Webb, pomo novelist Robert Coover, anthologist Larry McCaffrey of the Avant Pop anthology from Viking Penguin, underground sensation Thom Metzger as well as L A Ruocco, author of the challenging and labyrinthian Document Zippo.
