Description
One of the most banned books in history: John Cleland's tale of a woman's racy adventures Shortly after she turns fifteen, Fanny Hill loses both her parents. She moves to London hoping to find work as a maid, but soon finds herself working for a madam who intends to sell off Fanny's virginity. Though she is at first fearful of contact with men, Fanny soon learns the ways of extracting enjoyment and pleasure from sex. Written in the form of a confession, the novel follows Fanny as she works her way up in society while witnessing all manner of sexual encounter. First published in 1749, Fanny Hill was banned for obscenity and became nearly impossible to find for centuries. As delightfully ribald now as it was when it was first released, Fanny Hill continues to delight readers with its naughty charm. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices. John Cleland (1709–1789) was an English novelist who gained notoriety primarily through the publication of Fanny Hill , a classic of erotic literature. After working with the British East India Company as a young man, Cleland was thrown into debtor's prison in 1748, and it was from a jail cell that he penned Fanny Hill . He and his publisher were soon arrested again for the publication of the book on grounds of obscenity. Later in life, Cleland continued to write novels and plays, though never achieving the fame earned from his debut novel.
