Stand By Your Man and Other Stories (Paperback)
23 Literate, Human, Funny, Diverse, and Sexy Stories
All reader-tested in Honcho, Drummer, In Touch, The James White Review, and Bear magazines.
These stories were all written for...pop magazines. But when Fritscher is churning it out, he can also churn us up. So I'll only name a few of the highlights of Stand By Your Man which collects Fritscher gems from the monthly glossies. There's 'Goatboy, ' a J/O story about teencock in an absolute frenzy, and 'Daddy's Big Shave, ' a father/son story about a man who helps his son grow up and appreciate a quality daddy-boner when he sees one.
It's been bandied about that Fritscher is a two-fisted writer...the words read that way. Try the prose poem, 'In Praise of Fuckabilly Butt, ' a rush of words so horny your head will whirl and your heart will pound. And, finally, as an amazing climax to the book, there's 'How Buddy Left Me, ' which adds to the author's knee to the groin a pungent jolt to the heart. The story includes not only the expected arousal stuff, but an emotional left chop that leaves you feeling bittersweet and slightly forlorn long after your hardon has gone down. What an unusual, and, yes, stunning story. That Fritscher.
