A collection of stories by

What goes through the mind of a person while having sex?

Acclaimed storyteller Robert Olen Butler turns his daring imagination to the intimate in this collection 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 revels the delights, deviousness, and distractions of intercourse. Butler is at his most entertaining and insightful in this wild and engaging collection.

Adam & Eve * Bonnie & Clyde * Pocahontas & John Smith * Richard Milhous Nixon & Pat Nixon * Walt Whitman & Oscar Wilde * Elvis Presley & Holly Singleton (admirer) * Princess Diana & Prince Charles * William Jefferson Clinton & Hillary Diane Rodham * Santa Claus & Ingebirgitta (elf)
