An underground classic of the 1960s - an extraordinary novel of psycho-sexual entanglement. Post-war London, Louisa, a smartly dressed young woman in the midst of a divorce, meets a charismatic man in a pub, and within an hour has been sexually conquered by him on a garden bench. Thus begins her baffling but magnetic love affair with Richard Gordon. Gordon, a psychiatrist, keeps Louisa in his thrall with his almost omniscient ability to see through her, and she is equally gripped by the unexpected pleasure of complete submission, as they sink further and further into the depths - both psychologically and sexually. Templeton's prose exquisitely captures one of the most unusual and disturbing love stories ever written.Über den Autor:
Edith Templeton was born in Bohemia in 1916 and moved to England as a young woman. Her short stories, THE DARTS OF CUPID, to be published next year by Viking, caused a major stir when first published by the New Yorker over forty years ago because of their sexual explicitness. She has lived in India and Portugal, and now makes her home in Italy.
