Poetry. California Interest. Alexis Rhone Fancher tears the plain brown wrapper off erotica. She refuses to play safe, strips away pretense, intent on exposing the fragility, angst and longing lurking just below the sexual surface. EROTIC features poems and flash never before seen in any collection, as well as gems from Rhone Fancher's first two erotic offerings, How I Lost My Virginity to Michael Cohen & other heart stab poems (2014) and Enter Here (2017). It includes the infamous "Sister Poems," all together for the first time. With her "take no prisoners" attitude, Rhone Fancher spares no one, least of all herself. As she's quoted in The Fem: "I write about women like me, women who own their sexuality and take responsibility for their choices. It may seem I'm writing about sex, but really, I'm writing about power. Who has it. How to get it. How to wield it. How to keep it." Come along with the author as she careens through her checkered past. Enjoy her misadventures. Cop a feel. Have a laugh. But reader beware: Alexis Rhone Fancher's wry confessional may do more than lubricate your libido. It just might steal your heart.
Poet/Photographer Alexis Rhone Fancher traveled the world, then returned to her beloved Los Angeles, where she found work as an artist's model, a temp, a bartender, a sales rep, an actor, and a cocktail waitress in a men's only club. With a degree in Theatre from UC Santa Barbara, she used to joke that if she didn't make it as an actor all she could become was a secretary or an escort. Instead, she became a poet. Rhone Fancher is the author of six collections of poetry. Her work has appeared in hundreds of publications since late 2012, among them Best American Poetry 2016, Rattle, Plume, and The American Journal of Poetry. Her photographs are published world-wide, including the covers of Witness and Pithead Chapel and a five-page spread in River Styx. A multiple Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net nominee, Alexis is poetry editor of Cultural Weekly.Author City: LOS ANGELES, CA USA
