An odd book for odd people, “Frida Sex Dreams and Other Unnerving Disruptions” and explores gender roles, sexuality, and power. Containing elements of SciFi, humor, and erotica, the book includes stories about an over-sexed octopus, Jimmy Carter’s alien encounters, and an attempt to reach Harry Houdini through a seánce. Characters grapple with the unknown whether that unknown is Frida Kahlo, a fifty-foot woman, or a painting elephant.
