This post brings you something just a little bit different. Today I have made a very short podcast for you: an excerpt from the first chapter of Fanny Hill, by John Cleland – a piece of erotic fiction written in 1748.
From the Wikipedia entry for Fanny Hill:
“Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure (popularly known as Fanny Hill) is an erotic novel by John Cleland first published in England in 1748. Written while the author was in debtor’s prison in London, it is considered “the first original English prose pornography, and the first pornography to use the form of the novel.” One of the most prosecuted and banned books in history”
How could I resist?
It seemed like a great way to let you hear my voice, and if you like it enough (please let me know with a comment below!), then I may just podcast the entire story.
