Stories of Sex,
Death and Loss
by Jamie Joy Gatto
A Collection of Seventeen Original
currently under consideration for publication
Featuring Original Art by Mia Jennings
"My obsession with sex and death began as a child, when I was six years
old in the second grade, after viewing Franco Zefferelli's Romeo &
Juliet. I have never let it go. As an adult, I discovered that there is
no ache, no intensity, quite so exquisite as the pain associated with longing:
the yearning for that which has been lost, for those whom we lust after,
and for those people, feelings and situations which we feel we can never
again recover, be they imagined or real, metaphorical or allegorical."
This collection of seventeen new and previously published short shorts
and short stories explores a range of emotional intensity: from the fleeting
twinges of self-doubt, to the pathology of violent obsession and emotional
greed. The sexual explicitness portrayed in this work ranges from hardcore,
graphic to a light and splendid grazing of sensuality. The theme is tightly
entwined throughout, yet the style is fresh and original in each story.
We meet a variety of characters with a gamut of sexual desires: everything
from vanilla folks to lifestyle SMers, virgins to vixens. There are both
male and female protagonists who may be heterosexual, bisexual or homosexual.
While each character we meet has a different story to tell, each share
something in common: lust for flesh, the unconscious need for connection,
and the pain of loss.
