DESIRE: 100 OF LITERATURE’S SEXIEST STORIES

An evening with Mariella Frostrup in conversation with Emma Craigie

Literature is awash with love, sex and desire – but much of it is dismissed by critics as unintentionally comic or unacceptably pornographic. What makes good erotic writing? Where should lines be drawn? And what part does it have to play in a world awash with more literal sexual imagery?

Mariella Frostrup, broadcaster, literary commentator and agony aunt, is editor of the Erotic Review’s anthology Desire. She will be discussing the difficulties and discoveries of putting together a collection of the very best erotic literature, and how the progress of sexual equality can be charted comparing the new stories written by women with the fantasies of the Victorian men who first popularised the genre.

‘Whether you’re looking for love, lust or something in between, this gorgeous anthology is the perfect gift . . . or bedside companion.’Booktopia
