--ABOUT THIS ITEM--
ONE OF THE MOST Charming of blooms from the walled garden of erotica: a story that only those with a command of French have until now been able to savour. Summer in the Country is a tale of wantonness told in exchanges of letters between Albertine, the pupil-loving mistress of a girls' school, and Adèle, one of her former charges. The author, whom the translator Donald Thomas now at last skilfully identifies in his Introduction, captured with great skill the simple, eager vocabularies of the letters, exactly as they would have been written, without the use of a single forbidden' word or coarse allusion.
