Formats & editions


In the tradition of LA VIE SEXUELLE DE CATHERINE M, this is a sophisticated and enticing French confessional erotic account.

Elodie is an attractive thirty-something lawyer who loves her husband, her son and the city she lives in, Paris.
One day in court, however, her eyes meet the piercing gaze of a man and she finds herself unable to look away. The man begins to exercise a diabolic spell over her, both pleasurable and excruciating. Under his spell, Elodie discovers the erotic hunger of the flesh and the commanding power of words as she enters into a tormenting, obsessive relationship. Thoughts of him invade her life, what he does to her, but even more, what he makes her do.

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'”
