In The Roquelaure Reader, Katherine Ramsland, Anne Rice's acclaimed biographer as well as close friend, describes not only the Roquelaure novels but two other erotic novels Anne Rice wrote as Anne Rampling. She places this body of erotica within the context of Anne Rice's life, thought, and work, profiles the key characters, and details the special features of each novel. She discusses the novels' relationship to the erotic literary tradition and to feminist and sexual libertarian values. She provides wonderful trivia quizzes for Roquelaure readers, and includes two chapters cut from the novel Exit to Eden.

User Review  - Goodreads

If you really enjoyed The Sleeping Beauty or Exit to Eden books, you'll probably like this one. However, I would not suggest trying any of what you read in here at home, some techniques are truly meant only for fantasy. Read full review
