As the title hints its heavily sadomasochistic and surprisingly autobiographical. You have been warned but if you are in the mood…

Submission Synopsis

You'll want to scream, but you'll be gagged. You'll want to cry, but you'll be blindfolded. You'll want to run away, but you'll be tied up. You'll have no way of begging me, I'll do what I want with you.

A story of sexual obsession, domination and extreme desire, Submission tells of a young married Parisian lawyer swept up in a cycle of sado-masochistic lust. A handsome stranger she meets in the courts issues her with a series of instructions which she finds herself compelled to follow. As the violence of their encounters escalates, these acts will become a dangerous addiction that she can't break. But how far can she go and how much of her life will she risk in the process? Based on the author's own story, Submission sent shockwaves through the French establishment.

Submission Press Reviews

'A raunchy novel featuring sadomasochistic sex scenes reportedly written by a glamorous young Paris lawyer has sent tremors through the French establishment ... The book's candour rivals that of LA VIE SEXUELLE DE CATHERINE M'
SUNDAY TIMES


'This novel is affecting in several ways. Memory or projection, the novel carries the marks of an urgency in its writing sometimes giving it a documentary feel, as if the author were writing a news article about her own desire ... But what is most remarkable is its innocence: sex addicts gathered voluntarily in sects - nothing more ecclesiastical than perversion - the narrator taking a picturesque journey through an ascending landscape of physical propositions. We follow a young woman keen to record, with all radars functioning, a maximum of sensual experiences'
