This episode, Sexuality in Lit, features three writers who have incorporated sex and sexuality into their work in very different ways. Chapter 1, Tina’s Transformative Performance, features Fenton Johnson’s (The Man Who Loved Birds) account of a live concert in the late 60’s. Amber Keyser is our Chapter Two, Mom’s Sex Book, subject and she discusses the challenge of writing about sex in The V Word while raising kids, and in Chapter Three, Shifting Identity, National Book Award Winner Mark Doty (Fire to Fire: New and Selected Poems) examines our changing cultural landscape around the LGBTQ community.
