What if you fell in love with a man while married to a woman? What if you showed up for a university exam and your professor was naked? What if you were the only woman on an island of shipwrecked sailors? What if the gods had to deal with the sexual politics of scandal?
In this provocative and beautifully designed new issue of Granta, twenty-one writers take on the toughest topic of all – sex – from an array of shocking angles.The writing is by turns gritty, erotic, profound, meditative and hilarious. From the musicology of Zimbabwean sexual politics to the frankly erotic tale of a man seducing his lover in the pages of a national newspaper, this issue of Granta proves that it is possible to write seriously (and seriously well) about sex.
