7 posts | 6 read | 2 reading | 7 to read
Kink is a groundbreaking anthology of literary short fiction exploring love and desire, BDSM, and interests across the sexual spectrum, edited by lauded writers R.O. Kwon and Garth Greenwell, and featuring a roster of all-star contributors including Alexander Chee, Roxane Gay, Carmen Maria Machado, and more. Kink is a dynamic anthology of literary fiction that opens an imaginative door into the world of desire. The stories within this collection portray love, desire, BDSM, and sexual kinks in all their glory with a bold new vision. The collection includes works by renowned fiction writers such as Callum Angus, Alexander Chee, Vanessa Clark, Melissa Febos, Kim Fu, Roxane Gay, Cara Hoffman, Zeyn Joukhadar, Chris Kraus, Carmen Maria Machado, Peter Mountford, Larissa Pham, and Brandon Taylor, with Garth Greenwell and R.O. Kwon as editors. The stories within explore bondage, power-play, and submissive-dominant relationships; we are taken to private estates, therapists offices, underground sex clubs, private estates, and even a Victorian-era sex theater. While there are whips and chains, sure, the true power of these stories lies in their beautiful, moving dispatches from across the sexual spectrum of interest and desires, as portrayed by some of todays most exciting writers.

This was...okay. High marks for the diversity of characters and stories included. Other than that, I found myself bored reading many of these stories, and I feel like bored is the last thing I should feel reading this 😆. Like others, I really enjoyed Brandon Taylor‘s and Carmen Maria Machado‘s stories. March #Bookspin complete

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 10mo

This collection of stories is all over the map. Some are flat out erotica and some are fiction in which one or more characters are kinky (which may or may not have anything to do with the plot), and some are...well, what we used to call “artsy-fartsy shocky-wocky” stories (where the kinky elements feel...not gratuitous but maybe invested with more significance than they warrant).

I rarely read short stories, and less likely to read an anthology. But I was drawn to this, seeing the list of authors and it‘s mission. “Wouldn‘t it be wonderful, R.O. thought, if stories like these could live together in one book, in the kind of book that could sit on artists‘ residencies‘ library shelves?”
Like most collections, its a mixed bag, some better than others. But it‘s worth picking up for Brandon Taylor‘s “Oh,Youth” alone. So good!

This is such a well out together anthology. Not suitable for work. Severe adult content. Read my full review on my blog: kkecreads.com
