The Nerves: A Fervidly Psychedelic Odyssey of Queer Eros

November 1, 2022

This week we shine a spotlight on Lee Suksi’s delicious debut The Nerves. Enjoy a sampling of 10 chapters from 8 different voices: Inez, Ami, Dillon, Vic, Aley, Asher, Zoe and Carmen.

The Nerves subverts the literary approach to sexuality by treating the erotic not as a site of anxiety but of reverie. Set in an imaginary world where our sense memories tell us who we are, Lee Suksi’s literary debut is psychedelic, attentive, cinematic and hot. Writing toward sensitivity and ecstasy, exploring touch as healing abandon, The Nerves is charged with desire, devotion, and creative fantasy. Through a series of joyful encounters, Suksi reminds us that pleasure can be abundant, and nuanced and that it can heal. Engaging in queer erotics of language, Suksi’s debut is a bundle of wet atmospheres, speaking to the faith found in touch.

The Nerves went on to win the 2021 Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Erotica.
