Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You'll want to scream,

but you'll be gagged.

You'll want to cry,

but you'll be blindfolded.

You'll want to run away,

but you'll be tied up.

You'll have no way of begging me,

I'll do what I want with you.

Submission, the controversial novel that, according to The Sunday Times (London), "sent tremours through the French establishment," is bound to leave American readers breathless.

Sexual obsession, domination, and dangerous desire drive the story of Élodie, a young married Parisian lawyer who finds herself swept up in a cycle of sadomasochistic lust.

A handsome stranger Élodie meets in court issues her a series of instructions that she feels compelled to follow. He introduces her to sex clubs hidden in dark alleys, toys that enhance physical pleasure as well as pain, and couples whose appetites are as voracious as his. What at first seems out of character for Élodie — she has a small child at home, after all — quickly begins to shape her self-identity. As the violence of their encounters escalates, these acts become an addiction she can't bear. But how far can Élodie go . . . and how much of her life will she risk in the process?

This sophisticated and captivating novel exudes the sensuality that only the French can deliver.

Synopsis:

A sophisticated and enticing French confessional erotic account in the tradition of La vie sexuelle de Catherine M.

Elodie is an attractive thirty-something lawyer who loves her husband, her son and the city in which she lives, Paris. Her friends, like her, are successful, fun-loving and wealthy.

One day in Court, however, her eyes meet the piercing gaze of a man and she finds herself unable to look away. The man begins to exercise an irresistible and diabolic spell over her, both pleasurable and excruciating. Under his spell, Elodie discovers the erotic hunger of the flesh and the commanding power of words as she enters into an obsessive, tormenting relationship. Thoughts of him invade her life, what he does to her, but even more, what he makes her do. She is mesmerized by his skin, his voice, his commands. Words chosen for her, words that burn like the crack of a whip. But how does he see her? As a lover, or a well-trained circus animal gifted with a human female anatomy.

In describing the sweet pain of his mastery over her, perhaps he will at last understand.
