"We make books in an expanded field"

Badlands is pleased to announce the premiere of our erotica fiction series New Lovers at the Guggenheim Museum on ☛ Tuesday, March 10 @ 7pm.

Inspired by Maurice Girodias’ legendary Olympia Press, New Lovers features the raw and uncut writings of authors new to the erotica genre. Each story has its own unique take on relationships, intimacy, and sex, as well as the complexities that bedevil contemporary life and culture today. The first three books in the series are How To Train Your Virgin by Wednesday Black; God, I Don't Even Know Your Name by Andrea McGinty; and We Love Lucy by Lilith Wes. The authors will do a short reading, followed by a conversation moderated by Paul Chan. A book signing as well as a reception and exhibition viewing of The Hugo Boss Prize 2014: Paul Chan will follow the program.
