Maxim Jakubowski's view...

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

One of the leading contemporary authors of erotica long before the E. L. James tsunami, American writer Tyler also explored when younger many of the dangerous detours of the BDSM world in her real life and, until now, had only documented this in her blog. This is the initial volume, based on her writings there, of her discovery of kink and more, a sentimental and sexual education which will take your breath away and help understand the motivations and yearnings alternative ways of living can inevitably provoke. Written as thinly fictionalised biography, this is both fascinating, scary and heartfelt but also profoundly humane, and shows that the unsettling quirks of the human mind and body can come in much more than fifty shades.

Synopsis

Dark Secret Love: A Story of Submission by Alison Tyler

'I knew what I wanted - Someone who wouldn't laugh or scowl or turn away in disgust when I confessed my darkest fantasies. Someone who had a brush, and a belt, and a set of cuffs and was not afraid to use them.' Based on the author's real life experiences, this is a fictional account of a submissive and her quest for the perfect dominant. Dark Secret Love is a modern-day Story of O with a kinky fairy-tale twist.

Reviews

'A sulphurous personal memoir of past sexual activities which puts Belle de Jour's timid exploits in the shade' The Guardian
