Sins of the Cities of the Plain
Written 12 years before Teleny by Saul and a likely ghostwriter, this account of Victorian cross-dressing and rent-boys is a legend all its own. The work draws on the author's own experiences with an all-male brothel in Cleveland Street (later shut down scandalously.) Originally subtitled: "or, The Recollections of a Mary-Anne."

Dull and cartoonish porn, only interesting as a historical artifact. Love the word 'gamahuche'. Read full review
