 About the Book 

Inspired by the presumed poison of De Sades violent and licentious masterworks Justine and Juliette, Nicolas-Edme Rétif (also known as Rétif de la Bretonne) wrote this antidote- a work which morally defends the debauchery therein graphicallyMoreInspired by the presumed poison of De Sades violent and licentious masterworks Justine and Juliette, Nicolas-Edme Rétif (also known as Rétif de la Bretonne) wrote this antidote- a work which morally defends the debauchery therein graphically depicted and shows us that even the most libidinous of lifestyles can have a happy ending.Enter Cupidonnet and Madeline- siblings with a singular passion for all manner of deed and device. Amongst maids, Marquesses, Lords, and lawyers, the pair will seek pleasures unparalleled and spend profusely therefrom. Front and back, all will saviour the forbidden delights that draw those of like demeanour.Though lacking the torture that features in De Sades works, Rétifs work is no less shocking, as each page is filled with lurid accounts of ruttings and gamahuching, tribadism and sodomy. This gem of Enlightenment era erotica brims with the wild abandon of the Libertinage movement, setting the standard for the literary naughtiness that would feature throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. A must addition for any collection of the once-forbidden and suppressed.Certainly not for the faint of heart
