More About Fanny Hill by John Cleland; Gary Gautier
 
 
 
Overview
Fanny Hill, shrouded in controversy for most of its more than 250-year life, and banned from publication in the United States until 1966, was once considered immoral and without literary merit, even earning its author a jail sentence for obscenity.

The tale of a naïve young prostitute in bawdy eighteenth-century London who slowly rises to respectability, the novel–and its popularity–endured many bannings and critics, and today Fanny Hill is considered an important piece of political parody and sexual philosophy on par with French libertine novels.

This uncensored version is set from the 1749 edition and includes commentary by Charles Rembar, the lawyer who defended the novel in the 1966 U.S. Supreme Court case, and newly commissioned notes. Ingram First published in London in 1749, the story of a country orphan's initiation into the urban world of prostitution offers a remarkably frank portrait of sexual awakening of a young girl and the society around her. Reissue.
