Synopsis

In That Thing You Do With Your Mouth, actress and voiceover artist Samantha Matthews offersin the form of an extended monologue, prompted and arranged by New York Timesbestselling author (and Matthewss cousin once removed) David Shieldsa vivid investigation of her startling sexual history. From her abuse at the hands of a family member to her present-day life in Barcelona, where she briefly moonlighted as a dubber of Italian pornography into English, Matthews reveals herself to be a darkly funny, deeply contemporary woman with a keen awareness of how her body has been routinely hijacked and how she has been formatted by her early trauma. Her story is a study of her own uneasy relationships with female desire, her tormentors, and her loverswith whom she seeks out both the infliction and receipt of harm. This book is an attempt, sometimes self-thwarted, to break down barriers: sexual and emotional for Matthews, and literary for Shields. For Matthews and Shields, the only response to the unspeakable is to speak, to do that thing you do with your mouth, as directly and honestly as possible. Their provocative performance refuses neat resolution or emotional pornography; it will have readers, from literary critics to Jezebel commentators, raving, raging, celebrating, talking.
