Fiction. Erotica. Translated from the French by an unattributed translator. THE IMAGE is one of the most acclaimed and famous erotic novels of all time. One of only five erotic novels credited with truly literary status by Susan Sontag (in her essay The Pornographic Imagination), it is a story of bondage, dominance, and submission in the tradition of The Story of O. The narrator, Jean, gets help from Claire in the domination of the subservient Anne in a series of sexually explicit scenarios.
