Before "Fifty Shades of Grey "there was "Story of O, " the notorious novel of dark obsession that introduced the world to erotic fiction.
How far will a woman go to express her love? In this exquisite and taboo novel of passion and desire, the answer emerges through a daring exploration of the deepest bonds of sensual domination. O is a beautiful Parisian fashion photographer, determined to understand and prove her consuming devotion to her lover, Rene, through complete submission to his every whim, his every desire.
It is a journey of forbidden, dangerous choices that sweeps her through the secret gardens of the sexual underground. From the inner sanctum of a private club where willing women are schooled in the art of subjugation to the excruciating embraces of Rene's friend Sir Stephen, O tests the outermost limits of pleasure. For as O discovers, true freedom lies in her pure and complete willingness to do anything for love.
