Publisher's Summary

Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure was one of the most banned and censored books in the history of literature. John Cleland (a contrary man of letters, prone to boasting and getting into trouble with the law) wrote it while he was in Fleet debtor’s prison. First published in 1748 and withdrawn within a year, it was not legally republished until 100 years later. Widely considered to be the first example of literary erotica and a stylistic tour de force, with its combination of charm, daring, and love of pleasure.
The story is told by means of a series of uninhibitedly explicit letters from Fanny to an unknown friend, looking back over her colourful life and the characters she meets, as an innocent girl of 15 arriving in London. Now widely available at a computer near you, read by one of Britain’s finest.
