Description

CUNT versus PUSSY is a creative manifesto: a series of short confessions about writing dirty, the power of words, the limitations of genre, fulfilling your creative drive, and the business of writing.

A behind-the-scenes, non-fiction companion piece to M. Jane Colette's erotic romance Tell Me but subverting conventions of memoir and "truth" from the first chapter ("I'm writing for you, but I'm a liar"), CvP refuses to be an instructional manual ("What do you mean, you want instructions?"), connects readers to creative resources in off-the-wall ways ("He had a teenie weenie penis, and that's why you should read Anne Lamott"), examines the absurdities of publishing convention ("I need a blurb but divorce is a buzz kill"), and will leave you vibrating with the desire to fall in love, have some out-of-this-world sex on a mountaintop, make some art, and reclaim the word cunt in your private thought crimes and public conversations.

The faux memoir's "very useful" appendix includes the controversial essay "Why it's important to write--and read--romance and erotica in an age of plentiful porn," and a reading list designed to change your life.
