Emmanuelle II
by Emmanuelle Arsan and Anselm Hollo




Overview -
The international bestselling author of the erotic classic Emmanuelle continues her "all-out one-woman crusade to liberate mankind from the sexual taboos" (Panorama, Italy).

Emmanuelle II continues the timeless story of an unforgettable woman, a happy sensualist, whose unrestrained erotic experimentation explores the boundless possibilities of sex in a novel of literary and philosophical import.

The beautiful heroine's initiations into the ecstasies of love are here set against the exotic background of Thailand, where she easily moves from the attentions of a handsome Siamese prince at an elegant soiree to the dark ante-chamber of a Buddhist temple, where the vow of celibacy is cleverly circumvented by a venerable old monk.

A sensual delight, Emmanuelle II succeeds, like few novels before it, in pushing the philosophy of eroticism to the frontiers of myth. Its exploration of fantasy transformed into exquisite fulfillment makes this one of the finest erotic novels ever published, alongside Anne Desclos' The Story of O and Anaïs Nin's Delta of Venus.

"This new edition reminds us how this revolutionary epic had an impact on the sexual liberation of women." —Le Parisien Magazine

"Emmanuelle is not just sex; it is an eroticism that is vintage, oneiric, utopian, and tender, an optimistic and radiant eroticism." —Le Point
