Fifty Shades of Louisa May: A Memoir of Transcendental Sex

L. M. Anonymous


throughout the fresh renovations of the Orchard condominium in harmony, Massachusetts—home of the famed Alcott family—workmen repairing rotting beams stumbled on a handwritten manuscript tightly rolled right into a bottle and buried within the earthen flooring of what was the basis cellar. Conservators from Harvard University’s Peabody Museum date the manuscript from the overdue 1800s. even supposing the identify web page bears no signature, there will be little question of its authenticity or its author.

The textual content, released for the 1st time, will doubtless offend scholars—while shooting the prurient mind's eye of many readers. The author’s precise objective is misplaced to us, keep for tricks all through suggesting that scripting this mémoire d’amour served as a cathartic workout. merely the manuscript continues to be, and it truly is provided in unexpurgated shape here.
