Overview

In this glorious, unprecedented anthology, Black writers celebrate Black sensuality. Between Ntozake Shange's "Fore/Play" and John A. Williams's "After Play" arranged into chapters such as "When the Spirits Come," "Movin' to the Beat," "Naughty, Nasty, and Nice," and "Taking the Plunge" - are a host of imaginative short stories, poems, essays, folktales, and letters. Always spicy, sometimes raunchy, often tender and touching, or just plain fun, Erotique Noire/Black Erotica is also a serious and intellectually exciting anthology of Black literature, including such authors as Audre Lorde, Marita Golden, Alice Walker, Terry McMillan, Chester Himes, Trey Ellis, Calvin Hernton, and Barbara Chase-Riboud, among many, many others. African, African-American, Latin-American, and Caribbean-American men and women, gay and straight - novelists, poets, essayists, and scholars - provide wealth of erotic delights ranging from the lyrical to the lascivious, from the provocative to the shockingly explicit. Challenging the traditional shibboleths that have surrounded the literary representation of Black physical desire and sexual pleasure, Erotique Noire/Black Erotica draws open the curtain to reveal an erotic emotional world rich in its imagery, passion, and sense of adventure. Celebratory and bold, triumphant and heady, this collection reclaims the fullness of Black life. It is an extraordinary work of lasting valu for all lovers of litrature and, especially, the erotic.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The editors are to be congratulated for amassing a collection of erotica worthy in its own right because of the writers showcased, among them Alice Walker, Chester Himes, Gloria Naylor, Jewelle Gomez, Charles Blockson, Audre Lorde, and Essex Hemphill. Coverage is not limited to African American writers but includes African, Caribbean American, and Latin American writers, whether straight or gay, of prose, poetry, or fiction. For some authors, this anthology features their first piece of erotic writing. Readers will be familiar with other selections, for example, Lorde's ``Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power.'' As a whole, this book successfully challenges stereotypical notions about black erotica and serves up delightful sexual tidbits for just about everyone's taste.--Faye A. Chadwell, Univ. of South Carolina Lib., Columbia
