“THIS MODERN CLASSIC DESERVES TO BE RANKED ALONGSIDE THE GREAT FRENCH EROTIC MASTERPIECES, STORY OF O AND THE IMAGE, AND VERY FEW OTHERS. NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED OR THE NARROW-MINDED, THIS STORY OF LOVE, EXCESS, DEGRADATION, CRUELTY, TENDERNESS AND BEAUTY IS FOR ALL WOMEN WHOSE FANTASIES AND DESIRES EMBRACE THE INTENSELY EROTIC.” —DAWN AVRIL FITZROY
In the tradition of Decadent literature, spiced with Gothic, this provocative contemporary novel takes the reader on a voyage through dream, reverie, fantasy, memory and imagination – recounting the raptures and tortures in the initiation of a young woman, Gabrielle, by the Vicomtesse, the Comte and their entourage in The Domain.
THE RITES OF ECSTASY
Hélène Lavelle
Translated from the French by Valéry Soers
Trade paperback original; 240 pp., $14.95
ISBN: 978-1-7356159-0-5

… 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.


A CLASSIC 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
