Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to the secret world of Walter, a diary of one man's obsession with the opposite sex. A champagne-drinking Victorian traveler, Walter is lascivious, obnoxious, and possessed of an insatiable sexual appetite. Through a bawdy catalog of indecent scenarios with maids, widows, and wenches, he solicits an indulgent exploration of the flesh. His obsessions, fantasies, and voyeuristic tendencies are explored and revealed within this diary—one of the most famous examples of Victorian erotic literature from the decadent era. Only six copies were initially printed in 1888. Attempts to republish the book resulted in the novel being repeatedly banned. This is a dark work of Victorian erotica, and an explicit memoir of unspoken desires in the English class system—encapsulating the joy of hidden sins in an age of moral fervor.

About the Author

Claiming to have slept with 1,200 women from 27 countries (including every one in Europe), Walter is often referred to as the "English Casanova"—although the author's true identity still remains a mystery.
