Classics of Erotic Fiction (#11)

EDITION

A tale of adulterous love told with impeccable discretion. Balzac liked it so much that he cited it in full in his Physiologie du mariage, warning off husbands while recommending it to bachelors as “a delicious painting of manners of the last century.”
The New Oxford Companion to Literature in French

Denon’s tale portrays the Epicurean aspects of slowness.
The Boston Globe

Captures with concision and panache the spirit of Libertinage so central to eighteenth-century French sociability…No Tomorrow is a tour de force of disabused analysis summarizing all the manipulations, illusions, and self-deceptions which were the essence of eighteenth-century libertinage.
