About this book:
The complete text of this classic Victorian sexual romp is taken from a rare copy in the Private Case of the British Library. It describes the elaborate erotic revenge taken by Jack, the narrator, on Alice who had rejected his advances.
When Jack acquires a flat in London's fashionable West End he discovers a secret room ideally suited for his exacting demands. Fitted with all the accoutrements to enhance sensual pleasure, Jack makes full use of his new soundproof boudoir employing silken ropes and the imaginative use of feathers and electricity that stimulate more than just the imagination.
Purportedly recounting the history of a sado-masochistic relationship, Jack understands that it is discomfiture rather than pain that acts as a powerful aphrodisiac, and his creative yet gentle disciplines ‘convert’ Alice, her impudent maid Fanny and the jovial widow Blount. Between them they even an old score with a supercilious society matron and her obnoxious daughter.
