The Rest Was Just Imagination - An interview with Lydia Millet


BLVR: Your book Everyone’s Pretty is reportedly based on your time working with LFP. Could you talk about this influence in specific terms? The book doesn’t seem concerned with reporting on or analyzing the pornography industry.


LM: No, that was other people’s bailiwick. To me, mass-produced pornography is excruciatingly boring and the industry only a little less so. I was mostly interested in the styles of neurosis I met there.

James Tiptree, Jr: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon - Sex~Kitten.net

James Tiptree, Jr: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon - Sex~Kitten.net | Sex History | Scoop.it

Gracie reviews the biography of Alice Bradley Sheldon, an amazing woman who wrote award winning science fiction under the pen name of James Tiptree, Jr. from 1967 to her death in 1987. (She also occasionally wrote under the pseudonym Raccoona Sheldon from 1974–77.)

 

Tiptree was most notable for breaking down the barriers between writing perceived as inherently "male" or "female." It wasn't until 1977 that folks discovered that James Tiptree, Jr. was a woman.

Anaïs Nin | Literary Ladies Guide to the Writing Life | Sex History | Scoop.it

Anaïs Nin (1903-1977) embodies the practice of writing as a grand passion and a path to delving deeply into the self.

 

...Best known, of course, for her multi-volume Diary of Anaïs Nin, which became touchstones of feminist thought, she also broke ground as a writer of female erotica, and was a splendid essayist as well.
