Book Review: ‘Anonymous Sex’ Edited By Hillary Jordan And Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan

A great number of authors have written a collection of 27 short stories that range in domination, to funny to bored relationships and anything and everything sex related. Featuring Robert Olen Butler, Catherine Chung, Trent Dalton, Heidi W. Durrow, Tony Eprile, Louise Erdrich, Jamie Ford, Julia Glass, Peter Godwin, Hillary Jordan, Rebecca Makkai, Valerie Martin, Dina Nayeri, Chigozie Obioma, Téa Obreht, Helen Oyeyemi, Mary-Louise Parker, Victoria Redel, Jason Reynolds, S.J. Rozan, Meredith Talusan, Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, Souvankham Thammavongsa, Jeet Thayil, Paul Theroux, Luis Alberto Urrea, and Edmund White (although you have no idea which author wrote what story).

My favorite story is the first story about two people that meet once a year and it involves domination, wild sex and videotapping and going viral. There’s also a funny story about a hotel with paper-thin walls and hearing the people in the next room going at it (and if you’ve stayed in a hotel this has probably happened to you). A solid collection that never goes to far over the top, justa fun book to read.

You can pick up Anonymous Sex in stores on Tuesday, February 1st from Scribner.
