Whoever it was who claimed that sex was the most fun you can have without laughing hadn't encountered Neurotica--an anthology of Jewish short stories, most of which uncover the hilarity inherent in carnality. It is a stellar collection of twenty-seven tales of sexual longing and consummation and frustration--of straight and gay sex, married, unmarried, and adulterous sex, filthy, platonic, and pathetic sex, great sex, awful sex, and solo sex--by many of the masters and the freshest new voices of the Jewish-American literary tradition. Some of the stories are graphic, some ethereal, some wildly comic, some deeply tragic, but all offer a distinctively Jewish point of view on a universal pastime and preoccupation. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll--well, only you know what you'll do.
