XYXX is a limited-edition anthology of erotic short fiction by acclaimed short story writer, Jonathan Papernick. The five stories in this collection are shot through with lust, adultery, desire, sex and all of the struggles and complications of eros in the modern world. Author Steve Almond once wrote, “Papernick writes with tremendous passion about the downside of love, sex…” Papernick brings that passion to the page with the stories “We Were One,” “What Is It Then, Between Us?” “In Flagrante Delicto,” “The Cinq a Sept Girl,” and the deeply personal lament, “Saudade.”

The collection features artwork by Aubrey Beardsley, Egon Scheile, and Max Ernst.

Beginning in the summer of 2011 Papernick took to the streets to sell his books by Pushcart as “Papernick the Book Peddler.” He continues the innovative tradition of cutting out the middle man and bringing “market fresh fiction directly to the people,” with his new book XYXX, printed right here on Harvard Book Store’s Espresso Book Machine.

(This book is also available with an ISBN barcode on the back cover for any retailers interested in selling the collection.)

Papernick is the author of the short story collections The Ascent of Eli Israel and There is No Other, as well as the novel Who by Fire, Who by Blood. His mini-anthology Five Stories High and Rising is available exclusively from the Harvard Bookstore. He is Senior Writer-in-Residence at Emerson College.
