This companion to the movie Secretary, starring James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal which won Special Jury Prize for Originality, 2002 Sundance Film Festival, is a powerful love story that exalts the extreme, the ecstatic, and the weird. When a self-mutilating secretary goes to work for an over-exacting lawyer, the ingredients are ripe for a workplace S/M romance. With offbeat humor and edgy eroticism, Lee and Mr. Grey tread the thorny balance between control and surrender. Accompanying the screenplay are color photos, illustrations, the filmmakers' storyboards, notes, and essays.

Freud famously and bemusedly said that women's sexuality was a dark continent, and in fact so repressed were our impulses, so deeply denied, that it has taken a sea change in mores to admit to some of the less 'acceptable' ones at all. We have been waiting for cartographers like Erin Cressida Wilson to lead the way into this uncharted territory, to identify the routes through the thicket of previously inadmissible appetites and fantasies...At last a feminist—or a post-feminist, as Wilson has been described—with the nerve and talent to challenge the orthodoxies of power and powerlessness that have too often locked feminism into a Manichaean view of gender relations.
