Bad Sex
By Danny Shanahan
128 pages; Abrams, Harry N Inc.


Face it, where sex is concerned, we're animals. Also vegetables (and befuddled humans, young and old), in cartoonist Danny Shanahan's hilarious Bad Sex! (Abrams Image). Scott Spencer's introduction, with its plea to read the book slowly ("Let it caress...your funny bone") should be taken to heart. As the tortoise, bedding the hare, points out, "Hey, it's not a race."
