Story Of O

by Reage, Pauline

Story of O is an erotic novel published in 1954 about dominance and submission by French author Anne Desclos under the pen name Pauline Réage. Desclos did not reveal herself to be the author until four years before her death, 40 years after the initial publication of the book. Desclos said that she had written the novel as a series of love letters to her lover Jean Paulhan, who had admired the work of the Marquis de Sade.
