Book from 'Literature's dominatrix'


Susannah Breslin, the L.A. writer of the late Reverse Cowgirl blog, is out with You’re a Bad Man, Aren’t You?, billed as "a short story collection of sordidly sexual tales," from Portland micro-publisher Future Tense Books. She writes for L.A. Innuendo, whose editor Richard Rushfield provides the book's blurb.

"Susannah Breslin is the Dorothy Parker of post-millennial sexual exploratory writing...She is literature’s dominatrix, with a heart where her whip should be."

Breslin's bio says she is "at work on a Dante’s Inferno-meets-'Boogie Nights' semi-autobiographical novel, If Only These Hands Could Talk, based on her experiences loitering around Porn Valley." It adds that she is 6'2".

Added 10 p.m.: Breslin also has a piece in the new issue of Arthur.
