LILLIAN’S LAST AFFAIR by Sue Katz
Consenting Adult Press 2014, $9.99
A unique collection of short stories about the love lives of older people
“If I’m going to go after one more affair of the heart at 84, I’d better get my ass in gear,” says Lillian, speaking for all the characters in these six stories.
Ruby has a run-in with a waterbed and Catherine tokes her first joint in the bathtub with Victor. Elegant Anna’s introduction to kinky sex is bittersweet. And then there’s the neighbor with the strange attachment to the grocery cart. Sue Katz’s hilarious, tender, and impeccably written stories confirm that age fails to erode our eccentricities or dull our ardor.
Sue Katz’s stories are full of pleasure, pain, and humor, with carefully drawn, superbly evoked characters. —Richard Schweid, Oscar-nominated documentarian and author of Che’s Chevrolet
Buckle your seatbelt for an exhilarating ride. Lillian, Ruby, and other habitants of Sue Katz’s deeply irreverent stories… are touching, shining, tawdry, and sometimes hilarious. — Gina Ogden, PhD, LMFT, author of The Return of Desire
