Summary
  • A collection of short fiction by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author offers a revealing look at what goes through a person's mind during sex as he captures the innermost thoughts of such couples as Bonnie and Clyde, Adam and Eve, and Richard Milhous Nixon and Pat Nixon
  • "Adam & Eve; Princess Diana & Prince Charles; Bonnie & Clyde; William Jefferson Clinton & Hillary Diane Rodham; Walt Whitman & Oscar Wilde; Richard Nixon & Pat Nixon; Santa Claus & Ingebirgitta (elf)." "What goes through the mind of a person while having sex? Robert Olen Butler turns to the intimate in his latest collection. He lays bare the most flagrant, personal thoughts and feelings of fifty couples. 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."--BOOK JACKET
