Story Of O

By Reage, Pauline




Story of O is an erotic novel published in 1954 about dominance and submission by French author Anne Desclos under the pen name Pauline Réage. Desclos did not reveal herself to be the author until four years before her death, 40 years after the initial publication of the book. Desclos said that she had written the novel as a series of love letters to her lover Jean Paulhan, who had admired the work of the Marquis de Sade.

He is most famous for his character Valentina, created in 1965 and very representative of the spirit of the sixties.

The Story of O

Reage, Pauline

Paris: Olympia Press, 1965. Pirated edition. Typical of early 1960s Soho pirates produced for sale in the adult shops of the time. The classic erotic novel The Story of O tells of the sexual adventures of a young Parisian fashion photographer known only as O. Unlike Justine, she is more willing to partake in forced sex, torture and bondage because she loves the men who enslave her. Her lover René is the first to introduce her to the château at Roissy, where women are owned by men. Later, René "gives" O to his stepbrother, Sir Stephen, who takes her further into sado-masochism. Complicating the triangle is Jacqueline, a blasé fashion model with whom O falls in love. She instigates the break up of O and René but O does not mind in the least - she has been branded with Sir Stephens' initials and has transferred her powerful feelings to him.. Pirate Edition. Paperback. Very Good. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall.
