Sex and Death

by Sarah Hall and Peter Hobbs (Editors)
£18.99   paperback  Faber & Faber (2016)

Sex and Death by Sarah Hall and Peter Hobbs (Editors) How we come in, and how we go out, sex and death: these are the governing drives, our two greatest themes.
 
In this provocative, haunting and sexy collection of short stories, a group of acclaimed writers from across the globe probe the nature of, and connection between, two of the most powerful, exhilarating and terrifying forces that define and shape the human experience: sex and death.
 
Here we see the events that mark the lives of the young and old, of men and women, of those meeting only briefly and of others reflecting on shared pasts. In these intense, often traumatic and sometimes humorous interactions, we are confronted not just with our urges and anxieties, but with the very limits of mortality and morbidity.
 
Honest, compassionate and psychologically astute, the stories in Sex & Death are daring in their approaches to the form and relentless in their pursuit of what it is to be human.
