Hot And Bothered From Michael Thomas Ford, the critically acclaimed author of Last Summer and Alec Baldwin Doesn’t Love Me, comes this sizzling collection of fantasies culled from more than a decade of his best erotic work. These stories of heat, lust, desire, need, and transformation–an Olympian bacchanal, a chance meeting in the men’s room, an S&M-fueled “coaching” session, a police officer who’ll do what it takes to get a confession–are as incredibly hot as they are exquisitely crafted. There’s “Becoming Al,” an “X-rated Flannery O’Connor story” that takes place on the stage at a male peep show. The mosh pit of an underground club brings two punks to the edge and over in the adrenaline-charged “Diving the Pit.” A gorgeous window washer gives a worker drone some high-rise sex in “Washing Up.” And the power of a young man’s first sexual awakening–and the reunion it inspires twenty years later–lies at the heart of the achingly sensual “The Boys of Summer.” Along the way, Ford turns up the heat by confessing the naughty personal thoughts that inspired his steamiest erotica. A visit to his incredibly sexy dentist led to Ford’s delicious story of one explosive oral exam in “The Check Up.” The summer sounds drifting up from the New York City streets on a hot summer night influenced Ford’s sinfully sexy voyeuristic fantasy, “Wednesday, 2 A.M.” A hunky conductor on a commuter train gave Ford lustful thoughts and a whole new meaning for the term “Riding the Rails.” And the discovery of anonymous nude Polaroids gave birth to the no-holds-barred “Dirty Pictures.” Hard-core, tender, imaginative, candid, and just plain hot, these stories prove that when it comes to erotica that’s down-and-dirty AND intelligent, nobody does it better than Michael Thomas Ford.

A New York Times Editors’ Choice: “A mind-bending romp through a gender-fluid, eighteenth-century London . . . a joyous mash-up of literary genres shot through with queer theory and awash in sex, crime, and revolution.”
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New Yorker • HuffPost • Kirkus Reviews • Finalist for the Lambda Literary Award • Shortlisted for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize • “A dazzling tale of queer romance and resistance.”—Time
Jack Sheppard and Edgeworth Bess were the most notorious thieves, jailbreakers, and lovers of eighteenth-century London. Yet no one knows the true story; their confessions have never been found.
Until now. Reeling from heartbreak, a scholar named Dr. Voth discovers a long-lost manuscript—a gender-defying exposé of Jack and Bess’s adventures. Is Confessions of the Fox an authentic autobiography or a hoax? As Dr. Voth is drawn deeper into Jack and Bess’s tale of underworld resistance and gender transformation, it becomes clear that their fates are intertwined—and only a miracle will save them all.
Writing with the narrative mastery of Sarah Waters and the playful imagination of Nabokov, Jordy Rosenberg is an audacious storyteller of extraordinary talent.
Praise for Confessions of the Fox
“A cunning metafiction of vulpine versatility . . . an action-adventure tale with postmodern flourishes; an academic comedy spliced with period erotica; an intimate meditation on belonging.”—Katy Waldman, The New Yorker
“Confessions of the Fox is so goddamned good. Reading it was like an out-of-body experience. I want to run through the streets screaming about it. It should be in the personal canon of every queer and non-cis person. Read it.”—Carmen Maria Machado, National Book Award finalist for Her Body and Other Parties
“A hat tip to Moby-Dick . . . a running footnote hall of mirrors to rival Borges . . . one of the most trenchant calls for progressive action that I have read in a very long time.”—The New York Times Book Review
“An ambitious work of metafiction, a sexy queer love story . . . a bold first novel.”—Entertainment Weekly
The poets of classical India regarded love as the first and deepest of passions. Translator and scholar Andrew Schelling perfectly encapsulates the history and passion of eighth-century India in this collection.
“A single stanza of the poet Amaru,” declared a ninth-century poetry critic, “may provide the taste of love equal to what’s found in whole volumes.” Graceful and yet remarkably playful, intensely passionate, and at times hinting of divine transcendence, the poems translated here offer poignant glimpses into the many faces of erotic love. This collection, known in Sanskrit as the Amarushataka (“One Hundred Poems of Amaru”), was compiled in the eighth century and remains to this day one of India’s finest collections of love poetry. Legend connects the poetry’s authorship to King Amaru of Kashmir, while present-day scholars generally consider it an anthology of the verses of many poets.
