In the tradition of The Sexual Life of Catherine M and Story of O comes a captivating work of erotic literature by a 22-year-old.

What sort of woman has a taste for middle-aged, married men? Ellie, a university student and would-be writer, leads a carefree life in Paris until she meets Monsieur, a doctor more than twice her age. Beginning with their passionate encounter in a hotel room in the fifteenth arrondissement, Monsieur details their clandestine affair: the fleeting phone calls, the illicit meetings, the sexual adventures — and the devastating aftermath.

Often shocking but never gratuitous, Monsieur is a groundbreaking account of self-discovery and seduction. Ellie’s journey takes her from the highs of unquenchable desire to the edge of madness in this lucid, ferocious, and eloquent tale of a contemporary Lolita.
