Literary Sex

Here’s what Val McDermid had to say in a Guardian interview about sex in books..

“Writing good sex is much more difficult than doing good sex.”

Unless it’s funny… then you can get away with anything.

That’s why you’ll find plenty of sex in MY GUN HAS BULLETS and BEYOND THE BEYOND and none in the DIAGNOSIS MURDER books. Then again, do you really want to picture Dick Van Dyke doing it?
