By Angela Carter

Sexuality is energy' - so says the Marquis de Sade, thinker and pornographer extraordinaire. His virtuous Justine retains to the foundations laid down by way of males, her present rape and humiliation; his Juliette, Justine's triumphantly substantial antithesis, viciously exploits her sexuality. In an international the place all tenderness is fake, all beds are minefields.
But now Sade has met his fit.
With invention and genius, Angela Carter takes on those outrageous figments of his severe mind's eye, and transforms them into symbols of our time - the Hollywood intercourse goddesses, moms and daughters, pornography, even the sacred shrines of intercourse and marriage lie devastatingly uncovered earlier than our eyes. Angela Carter delves into the viscera of our distorted sexuality and divulges a stunning imaginative and prescient of affection which admits neither of conqueror nor of conquered.
