The Marquis de Sade continues to linger in our imaginations. After two centuries, this man still has the power both to shock and to inspire feelings of awe, contempt and disquiet. Nevertheless, the intricacies of his character, the work he produced and the nature of the threat he still seems to assert have been shrouded by time and the concept of sadism. Ronald Hayman's searching biography uncovers the man at the heart of the myth and illuminates de Sade against the repression, violence and change of the 18th century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Mr. Hayman's is a good terse biography... We follow the young marquis from the days of motherly neglect... to the exaggerated Jack-the-Ripper reputation that got him into the Bastille... Whether we like it or not, we have to accept that Sade was an original thinker, as shockingly candid as Freud and as radical a discloser of psychological truths that the world of the respectable would prefer to remain hidden.' Anthony Burgess, The Observer.
