Críticas:

The stories in Sex & Death often show death at a remove . . . But if many characters remain largely oblivious to death until it forces its way into their lives, they are only too conscious of sex and the having of it . . . the division between life and death is at all times thinner and more fragile than we willingly admit. (Chris Power Guardian)

These 20 stories grapple with the meaning of life in myriad heartfelt ways, combining to create a challenging yet life-affirming read. Curl up on the sofa and indulge yourself.' (Imogen Lycett Green Daily Mail)

It could be argued that all tales are, somehow, about sex or death, but in this collection of 20 short stories written by authors around the world, these tantalising themes are thrust into the spotlight. Some are laugh-out-loud funny, such as Alan Warner's Porto Baso Scale Modellers, when an attractive woman tries to join a group of elderly model plane enthusiasts. Some are creepy, for example In The Reactor, by Peter Hobbs, about two dummy nuclear plant workers. And some are overtly sexual, but it's not a collection of soft porn stories. Instead, there's plenty to provoke longer thought - Fin by Lynn Coady and Reversible by Courttia Newland throw up difficult subjects that are hard to forget - with a couple of light-hearted one-shots to balance it all out.' (Graeme Smith The Herald)

snap this one up because it is a treat. (Bookmunch)

Reseña del editor:

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.
