One of the most creative and insightful reviews thus far for Sex Scene: An Anthology comes via the wonderful website The Curse of the Drinking Class (which describes itself as “a sardonic book blog of lists”).
Why so creative, then? Well, as mentioned above, the site works off of lists, so for Sex Scene, they listed “6 Moods”–6 hand-picked pieces from the anthology and the songs they believe best represent them. I have to say, it’s quite fantastic and startlingly accurate.
The collection of vignettes and short stories in Sex Scene: An Anthology attempt to unravel the web of human desire (if there was a theme song to the anthology, it would be Bjork’s Human Behaviour). And, just like in the movies, they land up doing much more. This collection of stories not only points to the nuances of our desires, but each scene is a prism, hinting at an infinitely more complex spectrum of human behaviour.
Oh yes. Make sure you give this one a read…and a listen. Check out the full review here.
