Product Overview

Written in the wake of May 1968 and Deleuze and Guattari's "Anti-Oedipus," Tony Duvert's "Good Sex Illustrated" ("Le bon sexe illustr?") was part of the miraculous moment when sexuality could turn the world upside down and reveal social hypocrisy for what it was. Bitterly funny and unabashedly anarchistic, "Good Sex Illustrated" openly declares war on mothers, family, psychoanalysis, morality, and the entire social construct, through a close reading of sex manuals for children. Published in 1973, one year after Duvert won the prestigious Prix M?dicis, it proved that accolades had not tempered his scathing wit or his approach to such taboo topics as pedophilia. This translation, by award-winning author Bruce Benderson, will belatedly introduce English-speaking audiences to the most infamous gay writer from France since Jean G?net first hit the scene in the 1940s.
