Mademoiselle S., erotic letters
Romanian title: Pasiunea domnișoarei S., Scrisori editate și comentate de Jean-Yves Berthault, Editura Trei, Colecția Eroscop, 2015
A former French ambassador found a bag of mysterious letters hidden in an old house. They were written by a certain Simone to a certain Charles in Paris, in 1928-1930. The letters are extremely loving, passionate, sensuous, daring, and modern for their time.
Simone is in love with a married man and looks for all kinds of pleasures and new, exciting, audacious touches and sensations to give him. She goes from sweet love declarations to passionate and bold sexual scenes, she both remembers and fantasizes about them, she is both a loving mistress and a ravaging young man possessing Charles.
Her language is elegant even when she talks dirty, her audacity grows with every letter, her passion is uncontrollable, and her love story is interesting, even if Charles remains elusive. The editor’s notes help the readers understand the context, the mentality of the time, the French society and civilization of almost a century ago. I suggest you read one or two letters every night. After all, strong essences are kept in small bottles. 😉
