Every Way I Know How is a collection of erotica that is as much about telling stories as it is about being erotic. There’s no shortage of sex in it, so don’t worry about that, but it always tells a human story too.
There’s a bridesmaid who helps the mother-of-the-bride find a fashion that suits her. There’s a guest speaker at a college whose night is disrupted by a young woman’s poetry. There’s a landlady who is irresistibly drawn to her guest’s bedroom. And many others too, female and male, queer and straight, old and young, all discovering that their sex stories are also life stories.
Together they show that sex is never meaningless, that part of being human is finding out exactly what sex means for us.
