Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

S-M: The Last Taboo

S-M: The Last Taboo - Gerald Greene, Caroline Greene My husband scavenged this amazing, 1974 copy, featuring a hand-drawn rose with bloody thorns. S-M is not my cup of tea, but this is quite an extensive collection of styles, philosophies and stories and I would imagine it's an important book for the library of any S-M "scholar." I also really appreciate that it was written by both a man and a woman, together, and both their voices and perspectives are heard quite clearly.
