Story of the Eye

Penguin UK
39

Bataille’s first novel, published under the pseudonym ‘Lord Auch’, is still his most notorious work. In this explicit pornographic fantasy, the young male narrator and his lovers Simone and Marcelle embark on a sexual quest involving sadism, torture, orgies, madness and defilement, culminating in a final act of transgression. Shocking and sacreligious, Story of the Eye is the fullest expression of Bataille’s obsession with the closeness of sex, violence and death. Yet it is also hallucinogenic in its power, and is one of the erotic classics of the twentieth century.

MADLY: Too Much Too Soon

We all sin. It’s the choices made after, that define us.

Natasha Perry is most comfortable camouflaged in ordinary. A drunken father trashed her innocence. She became imprisoned by addiction and a vile strip-club owner, Wolf, but eventually escaped, finding salvation in music to suppress her dark past. She turned her life around, retreating into a world where Natasha became a weaker person: Tash, a woman madly ruled by alter-egos Goldilocks and The Slut. The cost of controlling her alters’ mind-fuck is a need to hide behind a mask of controlled nothing special, with a song in her head.


All thoughts of control are usurped when she meets tall, dark and delicious Dr Sebastian Mancini, reluctant-Mafia son. The powerful and wealthy Mancini family lead by Renzo Mancini will do anything to safeguard the family’s name, reputation and secrets. One of those secrets is hunting the couple, jeopardising Sebastian and Natasha's romance and lives.


‘Madly’ is the beginning of an explosive journey taken by a complex, couple who are simply falling in love. Balancing the too much, with the too soon, sees their story capture all that is seductive, dangerous, and soulful about sex, drugs and rock and roll. Their plight complemented by the soundtrack in Nat’s mind, a lens colored in the tones of music, which soothes her troubled mind. The story delves into the madness of inner voices and the masks so-called 'normal' people hide behind when dealing with lust, love, guilt and ambition.
