Close to the Bone

In this provocative collection of memoirs, eight acclaimed writers go about the risky business of telling their own secrets. Collectively, they provide what amounts to a psychic map of American life, from the streets of New York's East Village - where Peter Trachtenberg's affair with a fragile ex-prostitute becomes entwined with scenes from an imaginary film noir, to the trailer parks of southern California - where, in a last-ditch bid for affection, Terminator dresses in drag and seduces his abusive mother's boyfriend. In between, Jane Creighton has an affair with her gentle, sickly brother; Lois Gould recalls Businessman - the flamboyant gentleman who had a string of red-haired mistresses and who, incidentally, was her father; Phillip Lopate visits his pathologically schlumpy dad in a nursing home; Laurie Stone searches for the connections between her creativity and her addiction to sex; Jerry Stahl remembers his rockbottom days doing crack in Los Angeles; and Catherine Texier, an accomplished adult, meets her father for the first time in the south of France.
