3.0 out of 5 stars Good Writing By Little, Confusing Choice of Content, 11 Nov 2008
Clifford (Weymouth, Dorset, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Essential Paul Little (Mass Market Paperback)
Paul Little is well known for his erotic writing, which usually involves a significant element of M/F chastisement. Much of his work has appeared anonymously, particularly under the Red Stripe imprint. Regrettably, this opens the door to confusion regarding what exactly a purchaser might be purchasing in a book of extracts, such as this, and when extracts carry titles that are quite different from those of earlier manifestations, confusion enters immediately. Of the five extended extracts included here, two are definitely substantial abridgements of Red Stripe publications. There is a 78pp extract from `The Amorous Professor' (1988), a diverting tale of a tutor who is assigned to highly disciplined households, here called `Fit for a King', and a 38pp chunk of `The Passions of Lady Meg', a tale of deportation of young women to an American plantation with rigorous rules, here called `Love Slave'. In neither case is it easy to see why these selections are more `essential' than non-selected parts. `Tutored in Lust' is a tale of the erotic initiation of three young people. `Roommate's Secret' is a sad tale of repression in a female orphanage. `Sentenced to Servitude' relates the process of male domination of a young woman via pain and humiliation. Little's style is erotic, well-paced and authoritative, as well as being able to adapt to different subjects, and many will find this book interesting. However, I do feel that more effort could have been given to denoting the provenance of the work included
