'The author writes with such intimacy and precision that she frequently makes you feel like a trespasser in the bedroom' Daily Mail
A woman goes about certain rituals of sex with her second husband, sharing the bed with the ghosts of her sexual past.
A beautiful young art student embarks on an affair with a much older, married, famous artist.
A middle-aged woman struggles with the decline of her mother, once glamorous and still commanding; their fraught relationship causes unexpected feelings both shaming and brutal.
A man finds that his father has died while in the midst of extra-marital sex and wonders what he should do with the body.
And a boy sits in his Calculus class, fantasizing about a schoolmate's breasts and worrying about his father lying in hospital, as outside his classroom window the Twin Towers begin to fall.
In this stunning, taboo-breaking debut, Arlene Heyman, a practicing psychiatrist, gives us what really goes on in people's minds, relationships, and beds. Raw, tender, funny, truthful and often shocking, Scary Old Sex is a fierce exploration of the chaos and beauty of life.
