… at eighteen nothing, nothing could satisfy her. She had not yet felt happiness well from her own heart, but had to seek it in vain everywhere, in the hot sun flashing over concrete, where it lived in deep pools of water in the woods, and existed in other people’s eyes. Her longing at eighteen knew no bounds; she was secretive and lonely, dark and insatiable.

Rebecca’s friendship with Alluvia grows into an intense sexual relationship—complicated by her secret affair with Francis, Alluvia’s husband. Rebecca’s desire for both members of the estranged couple leads to a surprising culmination she could never have imagined. Jessy Reine’s haunting and poetic short novel is a raw exploration of female sexuality.

“… written with Nin-esque eloquence, electric and breathless, delineating a dreamy, moony, earthy connection between physical ritual and sex. This short novel/novella brims with evocative imagery and a raw complexity of emotions; as Rebecca maps out her corporeal and erotic existence, the languorous memories and present moments alike are intertangled and suffused with a mid-coital glow.”Elna Holst, author of Lucas

LIBERTINE LITERATURE

A CLASSIC FRENCH EROTIC NOVEL IN A NEW TRANSLATION

Thérèse Finds Happiness
by Marquis d’Argens
Translated from the French
by Richard Robinson
ISBN-13 978-1-7348166-3-1
paperback, 208 pp.,  $14

A new translation of an 18th century French classic of erotica. The first-person narrative reveals an innocent’s initiation into sexual self-fulfillment. The novel is striking for its stand against the sexual repression of women during the “Age of Enlightenment” and its highly amusing erotic episodes. (“…a charming performance…” —the Marquis de Sade) This New Urge edition—featuring a modern translation by Richard Robinson—has been exquisitely designed for collectors of erotic literature.

A D V A N C E  P R A I S E :

“This witty and seductive translation will make libertines of us all. Connoisseurs of high-literary pornography will cherish Thérèse Finds Happiness.
Catherine D’Avis
author of Angel of Everything

“…arouses the erogenous zones as well as one’s funny bone. Bravo Thérèse!”
Amandine Lévêque

“Potent and playful, Thérèse Finds Happiness offers up sexual ecstasy, libertine philosophy, and hilarious satirical scenes. The translation adds a contemporary edge to the text, and the tale’s happy ending is a tour de force.”
Lawrence Hamilton

HOT OFF THE PRESS

A fun, lively, contemporary English translation of an 18th century French libertine novella with a narrative technique that drops the soutanes, lifts the wimples, and pushes the boundaries of the novel – 150 years ahead of its time. Erotic, sacrilegious, funny and infectious, it is the “amorous true story,” as told by herself, Saint Nitouche, a Carmelite Extern Nun, whose “taste for pleasure and vocation for retreat” bump up against each other in surprisingly modern and eternally scandalous ways in the convent and in the bawdy house. Still scandalous today – if you’re easily scandalized, don’t read this book! – it is like THÉRÈSE FINDS HAPPINESS, but without the philosophy.

 

The first volume in the Pocket Erotica series — small format (4×6-inch) collectible volumes designed for connoisseurs  of erotic fiction — including new translations (first publications in English) of  French classics and obscure texts.

 


NOW AVAILABLE!

 

An arousing translation of a French libertine tale —naughty, romantic, edgy (but well-mannered)—that digs deep below the naves of the 18th century “amphibious” world of sex and religion. Its hero, a young abbot, hones his secular skills and steals the “laurels” of sexual triumph from among his choir of well-bred female trophies. A Coming of Age, originally La Morlière’s Ecclesiastical Laurels, unveils upper-society sexual shenanigans from out of the chapel and into the holy sanctuary of licentiousness and true love.
