Summary and Info
Review "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, author of *Little Children* and *Election* "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, author of *Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic* *"Big Sex Little Death* is subtle, hot, enthralling, raw and tender—I loved it. Susie Bright is a national treasure." — Josh Marshall, Editor and Publisher, *Talking Points Memo* "The best-named writer in America, Susie Bright has written a witty, wise, and enlightening memoir." — Erica Jong About the Author Susie Bright is the author of national bestsellers, *Full Exposure* and *The Sexual State of the Union*—as well as The Best American Erotica and Herotica series, which ushered in women’s erotic publishing. She the host of Audible’s *In Bed With Susie Bright,* the beloved and longest running sex education show in the history of broadcasting. She was co-founder and editor of *On Our Backs* magazine, and was the first journalist to cover erotic cinema and the porn business in the mainstream press.

She currently resides in Santa Cruz, California.
