Description

This infamous novel details the many sexual adventures of the fictional maid-turned-prostitute, Fanny Hill, whose name has become synonymous with scandal and obscenity. Written while author John Cleland was in debtor's prison, The Memoirs of Fanny Hill is considered the first English example of a pornographic novel. The Memoirs of Fanny Hill was banned soon after publication in 1748, but was so widely pirated that it remained available until it was finally re-released 1960. However, after distributing more than 80,000 copies of the book, the publisher was forced to end production when it was charged under the Obscenity Act. The Memoirs of Fanny Hill was finally published without legal repercussions in 1970. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
