Oh dear, what to say about this. One of those books I probably wont be telling my mum I've read! I am afraid I don't understand this as a manifestation of love, or how someone can view what amounts to complete abasement as enobling. I thought it odd that when I reserved it at the library that both the county's copies were in the prison libraries. They were then found to not to be in a condition to lend. Having read it I think I can see why - on both counts! One suspects that the jacket blurb about this book being erotic but not pornographic was rather too fine a distinction.
