Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once considered pornographic and vile, "Fanny Hill, or the Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure" was, until 1966, censored in the US. The story of a lowly prostitute's rise to respectability, it is now seen as a unique mixture of parody, sensuality, philosophy, and entertainment.<P>This edition features an introduction written by Professor Gary Gautier and features commentary by Charles Rembar, the lawyer who defended the novel in the 1966 US Supreme Court case.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [224]-225).
