Wanderlust has some flashes of quality but does not completely deliver on the promise of the title or the back cover description. While there is travel in abundance, the erotica sometimes falls short. This book is a compilation of stories by African American writers, some of whom show great promise. “The Fixer” by Sandra Kitt is a skillfully written and very believable tale of the fun of vacation once the inhibitions of home are abandoned. “Blackberries” by Nalo Hopkinson provides an inventive twist on a ménage a trios where the foreplay is verbal, demonstrating the erotic power of the spoken word.

“Southernmost Triangle” by Preston L. Allen also explores a multi-partner sexcapade with undertones of emotional baggage and even torture involving a married couple and others. “La Segua” by Brandon Massey throws a bit of science fiction into the mix with chilling results and proves to be a cautionary tale about infidelity.

While not as great as it could be, Wanderlust, is a delectable treat for most connoisseurs of erotica.
