Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

How to describe writing about sex? "Pornography" seems old fashioned, male-oriented; and "erotica," while kinder and gentler, feels like a marketing term. Kitty Tsui's Breathless carries the label "erotic" on its cover, but it's explicit, no-holds-barred, depictions of lesbian sex--including S-M, bondage, and rough play--feels closer to the hard edge of porn, not the gracefulness of "erotica." Tsui has been writing for more than a decade and is just now finding a wider audience, and it is about time. Breathless is beautifully written, and Tsui knows exactly what she is doing. The grace of the prose is countered, line by line, with sexual and emotional excitement that startles us, even as we are seduced by it. Breathless is a nonstop roller coaster that leaves us feeling just that.

This book jumped into my hands at the book store and I've reread it every month or so since to wake up my awesome passion for women and to feed my imagination. I am desparately in love with Kitty and have mildly obsessed with all of her work. Reading this book has truly changed my life because in several of her stories she mentions a festval in Michagan where there are thousands of women and I went this year for the first time and expirenced the most beautiful, emotional and sex charged week of my entire life. For that I owe Kitty a kiss on the boots and a heartfelt thank-you!

Without a doubt RAW, BOLD and BODACIOUS! The masochism created stirrings and such an arousal in me that,I'm seeing myself in a different light these days. Thank-you Kitty.

Since I picked up a book about lesbian erotica. I was not disapointed. Kitty Tsui is a fine word chef who crafts her stories like a five course meal. Each one to be savored but diffrent flavor sprinkled through out. This "Foodie" left the table full. Bravo Kitty.
