Written just before the publication of his first novel, In Between the Sheets sparked controversy with the author's choice of brazen and contentious subjects. In a 1979 interview, he claimed that these seven stories "were a kind of laboratory for me. They allowed me to try out different things, to discover myself as a writer."
