High Risk : An Anthology of Forbidden Writings
This provocative collection of short fiction, essays, and poetry freely delves into forbidden zones of sex and transgressive behavior. The writers and artists featured in High Risk share one strong conviction: that art must be bound only by the limits of the imagination. Here is the so called dark side of life beckoning in all its manifestations - sadomasochism, prostitution, incest, drug use, bondage, transsexuality. Filled with tenderness and brutality, with wit and sensuality, these are works by writers on the cutting edge of contemporary American literature. This is writing that dares to give voice to the shadow regions of the heart, to the most subversive desires of the body, and to a politics that unabashedly defies convention.
