CLELAND, J.: Fanny Hill (Abridged)


About this Recording

CLELAND, J.: Fanny Hill (Abridged)

It could be argued that Fanny Hill: or the Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure is the greatest erotic classic in English literature. It is certainly, for the eighteenth century, the most explicit. Published between 1748–1749 (in two parts) it led to the arrest of its author John Cleland and publisher.
