I will be mailing this book out soon, along with Over Sexteen as part of my Over 18 book spiral.
I just adore charming & old out-of-print books like this one.
The lady on the cover is definitely not my idea of Anna!
(I may return to this j.e. to add more comments at a later date. There are some interesting parallels with Elfriede Jelinek's The Piano Teacher...)
And some links to the Goya works mentioned in the story, here and here and here.
On its way to JennyC1230.
innae - Does it go somewhere else after I finish?
This one was a bit strange. I kept expecting something to happen, but not a lot did. Not a lot of wild S/M. It was more implied in a vague way.
Not sure what to do with it now, so I will make it available until I figure it out. :-)
