From ‘The Story of O’ to ‘The Sexual Life of Catherine M.’, readers have been enthralled with sexually subversive memoirs by women. But even those erotic classics don’t navigate the psychosexual terrain that Toni Bentley covers when she meets a lover who introduces her to a radical and unexpected pleasure.


‘Ms Bentley belongs to the tradition of D.H. Lawrence, Norman Mailer, Henry Miller and Anais Nin, which sees sex as an avenue to the mystical and sublime.’ New York Times


Few women do it, and even fewer will admit to it. But in Toni Bentley’s daring and intimate memoir she pulls the sheets back on an erotic experience that has been forbidden since the Bible.


‘The Surrender’ is a witty, intelligent and eloquent exploration of one woman’s obsession that will be sure to leave readers questioning their own desires.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Stylish and amusing.’ Entertainment Weekly ‘Wonderfully smart and sexy and witty and moving.’ Publishers’ Weekly (one of its ‘Best Books of 2004’) ‘A small masterpiece of erotic writing.’ Leon Wieseltier ‘“The Surrender” is a brave book…in its earnest attempt to do justice to the transcendent dimensions of a profane act.’ New York Times Book Review ‘The art of talking dirty may have come late to women, but when we get it – and Toni Bentley has – the pages burst into flames.’ Nancy Friday
