Maxim Jakubowski's view...

PAULINE REAGE - STORY OF O is, of course, one of erotica’s perennial classics but its importance should never be overlooked. The tale of a young woman who gives in to her submissive nature and undergoes a sexual quest with no equal that can still shock to this day, it also raises fundamental questions about the nature of sexuality and relationships, even if you are not into whips and intimate piercings.

Synopsis

Story of O by Pauline Reage

ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS EROTIC NOVELS OF ALL TIME.

Reviews

'A rare thing, a pornographic book well written and without a trace of obscenity' Graham Greene

'A highly literary and imaginative work, the brilliance of whose style leaves one in no doubt whatever of the author's genius...a profoundly disturbing book, as well as a black tour-de-force' Spectator

'Here all kinds of terrors await us, but like a baby taking its mother's milk all pains are assuaged. Touched by the magic of love, everything is transformed. Story of O is a deeply moral homily' J.G. Ballard

'Cool, cruel, formalistic fantasy about a woman subjected - at the prce of the great love of her life - to the gamut of male sado-masochistic urges' Birmingham Post
