Writers such as Martin Amis, T. Coraghessan Boyle, Michael Benedikt, Kim Addonizio, Michelle Chalfoun, Armistead Maupin, John Irving, Anne Rice, and Elizabeth Benedict, all of whom contribute to this collection, have described in story, novel, or poem the sometimes funny, sometimes touching, sometimes pathetic moments that confront their characters when dealing with this artifact of contemporary civilization, the condom.
Male and female, young and old, straight and gay--their characters reflect the changes in concepts of intimacy, contact, contagion, and death as they are connected with the act of making love. They are some of the most vital subjects confronting our society today. These twenty-eight pieces are often wry, witty commentaries on human foibles, things we might never discuss with a stranger but would love to read about. Here is a collection with a high degree of literary merit as well as a good sense of humor. Getting It On will be published in February 1999 to coincide with National Condom Week. With a literary pedigree as well as a social conscience, this collection is certain to engage, edify, and amuse.
