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.… (mere)

Interesting this one…an account of the sexual awakening of America as seen through the eyes and body of a woman. There’s been heaps of these by men.

It records that time when the pill became available and was prevalent, drugs available and prevalent and some young people willing “to see what’s out there” and no longer follow the old road as laid down by parents and society as whole.

It really brings home just how lively things were in the 60’s and 70’s before the rise of the neo-cons that we still live with and who have really fucked things up by now. How political awareness was happening compared to the bland simplistic tweet based stuff I see around me now.

This was in the days when people who queue all night to protest an unjust war instead of queueing all night for a fucking phone!

I could go on :-)

Read and grow up. Read and learn. Read and enjoy ( )

I love her essays. I love her passion and chutzpah. I admired her during the Lesbian Sex Wars of the early 1990s.

I really didn't enjoy this memoir. It was disjointed and, more unforgivably, flat. If you are interested in the Socialist/Labor movement of the late 1970s or the sex radical movement of the 80s/90s or the history of On Our Backs, it's worth getting for an overview, but generally, I'm sad to report this just wasn't very enjoyable.

As a person who came of age during the roaring '70's only to enter college and adulthood for the early years of HIV, I've always admired Susie Bright. She's been a sex-positive educator throughout her career - openly gay, an editor of annual collections of erotic stories. She founded On Our Backs, the first magazine for gay women. She was the first female critic of the X-Rated Critics Organization and wrote feminist reviews of erotic films for the Penthouse Forum. She sassy and funny and was a beacon during the Reagan-era for treating sex as a normal and extra fun part of life. I was really excited to get this memoir, but stopped reading about halfway in. It's not that it wasn't well-written or interesting (it is both), but for some reason it just didn't grab me. Maybe I already know as much as I want to know about Susie Bright? ( )

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
-W. B. Yeats
