Ooh La La!: Contemporary French Erotica by Women
Maxim Jakubowsi and Franck Spengler, ed.
Dominique Aury under the penname Pauline RÃ©age wrote The Story of O in 1954 and opened the floodgates for a whole new, sulphurous tradition of female erotica, since appropriated by female writers all over the world, including Anne Rice in the USA writing as A.N. Roquelaure. But the wonderfully perverse imagination of French authors has continued unabated ever since, and the daughters of O are now legions, including leading lights like Catherine Millet, Regine Deforges, Francoise Rey, Vanessa Duries, Florence Dugas, Alina Reyes, and the famous fashion designer Sonia Rykiel, all of whom contributed to this collection.
French literary sex is hot, elegant, gently perverse, quietly shocking, and always arousing — and these twenty-nine stories will leave no reader indifferent.
