A collection of stories by

What goes through the mind of a person while having sex? Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Olen Butler turns his daring imagination to the intimate in his latest colletion that both dazzles and probes. He lays bare the most flagrant, personal thoughts and feelings of fifty often surprising couples. The author's meticulous research reveals that these famous people actually did get together and, almost certainly (he wasn't there), consummated their relationship. Erotic, provocative, political, and funny, each story illuminates the inner workings of these well-known people and also reveals the delights, deviousness, and distractions of intercourse. Butler is at his most entertaining and insightful in this wild and engaging new collection. 'An unabashed, rollicking trip through history told in brilliant paired monologues at moments of supreme intimacy-or not. If we humans are all that he says, this Mr. Butler, we are wise and wicked, compassionate and egocentric, tender and mad, and he, the revelator, is deliciously naughty, keen-witted, and clairvoyant, a master of a hundred voices. I laughed out loud, and I'm still laughing' - Susan Vreeland, author of Luncheon of the Boating Party and Girl in Hyacinth Blue
