Susie Bright in NYC

bright
The always fabulous Susie Bright will be in NYC to talk about her new memoir, Big Sex, Little Death. She is a wonderful and generous human being. I love reading what people are saying about her.

“Susie Bright is a one-woman counterculture, a teenaged socialist revolutionary turned Reagan-era sexual freedom fighter. In this lively, bittersweet memoir, she recounts a life full of political and erotic adventures and betrayals, a life at once deeply subversive and totally American, defined as it is by the idea that people should be free to express and pursue their own visions of happiness, no matter how uncomfortable it makes the prigs and scolds among us.” — Tom Perotta

“Susie Bright’s real life is just as compelling—more compelling—than her sex life. And that’s saying something.” — Dan Savage

“I have a very scary feeling Susie Bright is not making any of this up. Guns, drugs, threesomes, socialist factionalism, a stabbing . . . all before she got her G.E.D.?” — Alison Bechdel

“Big Sex Little Death is subtle, hot, enthralling, raw and tender—I loved it. Susie Bright is a national treasure.” — Josh Marshall

  1. Maybe it’s just me but I clicked on the link in the first paragraph of the Susi Bright post & it didn’t work. She sounds interesting, though!
