celebrating the release of

Big Sex Little Death

published by Seal Press

One of the country's foremost sex educators, activists, and writers, Susie Bright is an outspoken advocate of sexual equality and freedom. She came of age during a time in our country's history when sex and politics began to collide. In Big Sex Little Death, Bright recounts the adventure, sacrifice, danger, and controversy of her unexpected and extraordinary life. Presented three decades of Bright's bold, free-spirited, unpredictable life—from a childhood set against the backdrop of rich California history, but impacted by divorce and mental illness to rebellious teenage years that included a deep and sometimes startlingly dangerous involvement with the International Socialists' party to the launch of On Our Backs, the first-ever erotic magazine created by women, to motherhood. Bright depicts what it was like to be a young and incredibly independent woman during the cultural revolution of the '60s and '70s. She leads readers on a journey through the life experiences that ultimately led to her being named "The Avatar of American Erotica" (NYTimes).
