The story of The Story Of O

To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of the powerful 'The Story Of O', The Observer offers (I could have said 'submits'.  But wouldn't) memories of its author, Dominique Aury (writing as Pauline Reage).

It's difficult to explain my feelings about the book - it's simultaneously compelling and repellent, fascinating and not at all offensive, in my opinion.

Incidentally, I think it's safe to say the sequel is dispensible, unless only as a curiosity.
