Submission



Before there was the Fifty Shades trilogy there was Submission...

You'll want to scream, but you'll be gagged. You'll want to cry, but you'll be blindfolded. You'll want to run away, but you'll be tied up. You'll have no way of begging me, I'll do what I want with you.

Sexual obsession, domination and extreme lust - Submission is the story of a young married Parisian lawyer who is drawn into a sado-masochistic relationship. A handsome stranger she meets in the courts issues her with a series of instructions which she finds herself compelled to follow. As the violence of their encounters escalates, it becomes a dangerous addiction that she can't break. But how far can she go and how much of her life will she risk in the process?

Based on the author's own experiences, this astonishing book sent shockwaves through the French establishment.

Praise for Submission

'This novel is affecting in several ways. Memory or projection, the novel carries the marks of an urgency in its writing sometimes giving it a documentary feel, as if the author were writing a news article about her own desire ... But what is most remarkable is its innocence: sex addicts gathered voluntarily in sects - nothing more ecclesiastical than perversion - the narrator taking a picturesque journey through an ascending landscape of physical propositions. We follow a young woman keen to record, with all radars functioning, a maximum of sensual experiences'

LE POINT

'A raunchy novel featuring sadomasochistic sex scenes reportedly written by a glamorous young Paris lawyer has sent tremors through the French establishment ... The book's candour rivals that of LA VIE SEXUELLE DE CATHERINE M'
