Current Obsession | New Lovers Book Series


This week's CURRENT OBSESSION: New Lovers– a book series devoted to publishing new works of erotica, brought to life by legendary artist Paul Chan. If you thought Fifty Shades got you hot and bothered, wait until you sink your teeth into these puppies. The first three titles were released this spring and promoted at Chan's solo exhibition "Nonprojections for New Lovers" at NYC's Guggenheim Museum. More coming this fall!

Why the obsession? All titles in this series are written by women authors [obsessed!] and explore the complexities of contemporary life, culture, and art. Chan has managed to find stories that cater to our generation's curiosity and new sexual vocabulary. Each quick read will transport you into a different storyline and relationship dynamic that will leave you craving for more. Why not treat yourself to this eye-opening literary experience, right? Luckily these naughty novels are small enough that you can take them anywhere. My suggestion– story time with your girlfriends...don't forget the wine!
