Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland is pleased to welcome Susie Bright back to the store as she discusses her new memoir, Big Sex Little Death, on Sunday, April 10 at 3pm.
Big Sex Little Death traces Bright's development from fearful Irish Catholic Girl Scout to gun-toting teenage revolutionary to "Avatar of American Erotica" (NY Times). The book is both personal memoir and cultural chronicle, in which Bright’s life story is shaped as much by America’s sexual awakening as the national sexual landscape was altered by Bright herself.
Susie Bright is the editor of the Best American Erotica series and host of the weekly audio show In Bed with Susie Bright on Audible.com, and was co-founder, in the mid-80s, of the magazine On Our Backs. She has been a columnist for Playboy and Salon, and has been profiled in USA TODAY, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Mother Jones, and Vanity Fair, among other publications.
