At first, I thought (How Not to Have Sex) was a kind of instruction manual for writers. Being a writer myself, I had to check it out. I was not an instruction manual, but it might as well been. This turned out to be a superb short story that fully demonstrated Anna's mastery of telling. It was sexy, smart, maybe even a little irreverent but wildly entertaining. I must say, I was hooked from the first paragraph with "the birds are so happy, they just won't shut up about it." Five stars all the way. And, as a writer as well as reader, I must say I witnessed brilliance in this story and found something to aspire to in my own writing.
