Overview Erotika
What is Erotica? What do we actually mean when we say that something is «erotic»?

If we simply agree — in a servile way — to all that we are presented with in the media, these questions would seem easy to answer. Erotic images are around us all the time.

Inger Wold Lund chooses a different approach, however. Through a series of dialogues, most of them a page or two long, individual episodes unfold. And as they do, our preconceptions about the erotic are challenged or expanded upon in surprising ways.

Some of Lund's texts are decidedly sensual. Others are comical and even border on slapstick. Although Erotica is inspired be classics from the erotic canon, it is undoubtedly a singular work, with its own vision and scope. Throughout the collection, Lund displays a keen ear for language and an eye for how small events loom large in the most intimate of moments.

Erotica is also a book about experience and memory. Lund finds remnants of the past everywhere, in an abandoned house, in an old pair of pants or in fingermarks in the fog on a car window.

Reviews from Erotika
«Hun viser at erotikk kan være mye mer enn skildringer av vill og hemningsløs sex. Heller enn å beskrive erigerte peniser som penetrerer svulmende vaginaer, er tekstene avspeilinger av situasjoner hvor slike elementer har vært tilstede, men hvor det som vies litterær oppmerksomhet er tingene som skjer før, under og etterpå […] EROTIKAs spesielle innfallsvinkel til seksualitet gjør boken til en spesiell og etterlengtet leseropplevelse. Hvis du er blant dem som har avskrevet erotisk litteratur, bør du gi sjangeren en ny sjanse. Og den bør starte her.»
