Erotic Little Women


OR Books will soon publish Fifty Shades of Louisa May: A Memoir of Transcendental Sex, which gives Alcott, who “probably didn’t have much erotica in her life“a second chance at sex.”

“It just hijacks the modern erotica category, throws away the seriousness and the bondage, and lets legendary authors perform ridiculous and embarrassing sexual acts. As writers of any era often do.”

You can find Charley Locke's journalism on WIRED, tweets @CHARLEY_LOCKE, and drawings on her parents' fridge. You can also sometimes spot Charley imperiously making book recommendations while managing the McSweeney's Pop-Up Shops. More from this author →
