    The Passion of Mademoiselle S: Letters to a Lover is the first book by retired French diplomat, Jean-Yves Berthault. The book comprises a collection of passionate letters written by a certain Parisienne, identified only as Simone, to her married lover, Charles. The satchel of letters was discovered hidden in a forgotten cellar in Paris by the author when he was helping to clean out a friend's apartment. They are flawlessly translated from the original French by Adriana Hunter.The letters were wr [...]

    O colecție de scrisori erotice din Parisul anilor 1928-1930, care țes povestea unei relații pasionale și tumultoase între o Simone din ce în ce mai dezinhibată și un Charles eluziv. La început, relația e mai timidă, sentimentele tentative, scrisorile mai scurte, scrise într-un limbaj îngrijit, poetic, extrem de drăgăstos și senzual. Dar, în timp, totul ia amploare, experiențele se aprofundează, emoțiile se intensifică și scrisorile nu rămân în sfera diafanului și a inef [...]

    Well this was quite the book! I was intrigued by this book because of when it was set, the 1920' and I loved the idea of someone finding these letters and this being a true story. I was super excited to read it. This book was not what I expected. I expected the letters to be love letters, what I didn't expect was erotic letters. Maybe I was just being naive but I wasn't expecting to read something so graphic. But it was definitely an interesting book. Simone, the woman whose letters we read is a [...]

    Fragmente din recenzia care se găsește pe blog: mihaelaburuiana/cartisical() Se pare că scrisorile au fost găsite întâmplător în podul unei case vechi și țes povestea amorului pătimaș dintre o tânără de condiție bună și iubitul ei căsătorit. Pe fundal, descoperim elemente ce țin de societatea și cultura franceză a acelor vremuri, cum ar fi prezența destul de răspândită a telefonului, poșta pneumatică, emanciparea femeilor după Al Doilea Război Mondial, explorarea s [...]

    Full review: brownbooksandgreentea/2016Short form review: This is the story of a 1920s sexual tryst told through the highly explicit, if not slightly tedious, letters of an obsessive French mistress. Read this book for the editor’s great historical commentary and analysis, but skim through much of the repetitive erotica. I gave this book 2.5 stars.

    I wouldn't call this book a love story. The more you read it, the more you can understand that what is going on there is not love exactly. Their relationship is more defined my infatuation and desire than anything else.Looking from the 21st century, it wasn't that shocking really. But for the late 1920sah, I could see some inappropriate things to say the least.From the very first letters it becomes more evident that something is off with the main character Simone. She's overly obsessive, often l [...]

    I'm always hesitant about backstories of nonfiction text like this. The story goes that the editor found these letters by Simone while helping someone move, buried beneath newspapers in a piece of luggage and spent close to a year organizing their chronology and trying to understand Simone. She was a young woman who had taken a married lover and these are all of her letters to him, Charles. Clearly the letters are only her side of things as she narrates the very real appetite they both had for e [...]

    This collection of letters offers a fascinating insight into a very intense and sexual affair in the mid 1900s between a married man and a woman in Paris. One of the things that can be appreciated about this collection is that it shows that sexual pleasures such as BDSM etc. are nothing new to humanity, no matter what books like 50 Shades of Grey might like to tell us.However, I'm still conflicted about Berthault's interpretation of these letters. On the one hand there is definitely a sense in w [...]

    A tragic and poignant compilation of love letters sent in the 1920s. Erotic, sadistic, depraved and raw are the words I would use to describe this book. This book is love, this book is sex, this book is heart break.

    Cartas demasiado repetitivas con lenguaje nada elegante que fatigan hasta el cansancio. Encima es una historia predecible desde el primer 20 % de las páginas, donde se hace evidente el rumbo que tomará la relación entre los protagonistas y los deseos de ambos.No lo recomiendo ni siquiera como un texto erótico que amerite ser leído, pues no parece erótico, sino pornográfico, burdo y de mal gusto.

    Ce roman épistolaire que nous offre Jean-Yves Berthault, ancien ambassadeur du Bruneï, qui a découvert les lettres dans une cave. Les lettres commencent doucement dans un ton érotique et brutal. Son amant préfère la sodomiser et la battre. On peut se rapprocher du genre Dominant et Soumise dans certaines missives. Puis, au fur et à mesure, Simone expose d'une manière crue presque irréelle sa possession avec Charles.Charles est un homme marié. Simone tente de satisfaire les besoins de C [...]

    =>ladyhnalblog/archives/2 Avis d'Em'ma:J'ai reçu ce livre dans le cadre de masse critique. Je remercie Babelio et les éditions Gallimard/Versilio de l'avoir envoyé. Ce recueil réunit les lettres écrites par Mademoiselle S, ou plutôt Simone, entre 1928 et 1930 à Charles, son amant. Dès le début, l'amour de Simone pour Charles s'impose Elle accepte tout pour lui plaire, ne vit que pour les moments qu'il veut bien lui consacrer. Leur vie sexuelle et leur amour semblent être les points [...]

    multă pasiune și buciulealăTu știi ce facem noi, Charles. Ne amestecăm, ne înlănțuim corpurile, nu mai avem decât o singură carne, nu mai suntem decât o singură ființă, iar când îmbrățișarea noastră se desface și tu ieși din mine, simt că eu sunt mai mult a ta, iar tu, mai mult al meu. Corpul meu l-a absrobit pe al tău și al meau ți-a oferit ce avea mai bun. (p.148)s. vine de la simone, o tânără din anii 1920 care și-a întâlnit amantul, charles, în autobuz. babar [...]

    Un vrai bijou d'érotisme que cette authentique correspondance d'une jeune femme des années 20 ! A travers les lettres de Simone à son amant, Charles, on plonge peu à peu dans le monde des deux amants et on s'enfonce avec Simone dans la passion totale. Passion, qu'à travers les angoisses de Simone, on devine vouée à s'éteindre. Et pourtant elle s'en donne du mal Simone ! Pour plaire à son "petit dieu", elle ne recule devant aucun sacrifice, ni aucun tabou. De lui, elle accepte tout, elle [...]

    The Passion of Mademoiselle S, as edited by Jean-Yves Berthault is a free NetGalley ebook chronicle of letters and pneumatiques that I read in late January.Too often, one hears of the discovery of a hidden trove/cache in France that speaks of the decadence and aesthetic between World Wars I and II. Similarly, Berthault came across a messenger bag full of letters from a steamy, erotic affair that a husband named Charles returned to his slightly bipolar mistress, Simone. In reading these select le [...]

    A French diplomat finds a bag of old letters in a cellar. This letters are more than 80 years old and are sent from Simone to Charles, her lover.In them she describes with all detail their affair, what they did when they last saw each other and what she plans for their next appointment.As we only have Simone's letters, the point of view is very partial. She is obsessed wither her lover and their erotic relationship, and at first, Charles seems to reciprocate her feelings, only to slowly fade awa [...]

    THE PASSION OF MADEMOISELLE S. by Jean-Yves Berhault is touted to be in the same category as DELTA OF VENUS and STORY OF O - unfortunately, not so. The book is a collection of explicit love letters penned by a French mistress. The story takes place in the 1920's and despite the highly sexual content of the letters the story is rather one-sided, repetitive and boring. I did not find the mistress interesting enough to care about her story. The bright star was Berthault's attention to the drama and [...]

    I love a bit of erotica but this was no Anais Nin. Although Mademoiselle S was clearly depraved, utterly insatiable and very bold for the 1930's, she was also totally needy and a little bit bonkers. And I swear, if she referred to tonguing her lovers 'adorable little arsehole' one more time - I just might have lamped her. I've never met an arsehole in my life that's 'adorable'. Far from it.

    This collection of letters is no more written by Simone, a young parisienne of the 1920s, than Pale Fire is a poem by John Shade or The Princess Bride was penned by S. Morgenstern.This is a novel, every epistolary word of which was written by Jean-Yves Berthault.

    Elegante lúdicra Transparente elegancia en la escritura, aunque llega a abotargar por lo repetitivo. El sexo escrito difícilmente mantiene el pendon enhiesto.
