Author, journalist and filmmaker Ernest Greene launched his latest carnal opus Master of O, a contemporary update of the classic French erotic novel Story of O. The book is published by Daedalus Press (http://www.
This unique work of art and literature features 44 full-color explicit illustrations by world-renknowned fetish artist Fernando. Each was created with meticulous detail especially for this limited edition and carries the artist’s signature. This is the only work of illustrated fiction Fernando has done and is sure to become a collector’s item.
Master of O follows half-brothers Ray and Steven; two men with little in common except their shared passion for the dynamically beautiful O, a talented photographer with a secret life as a slave to the sexual whims of the competitive – and emotionally flawed – siblings.
“There are two sides to every story. Master of O is a re-imagination of the characters as seen from a dominant man’s point of view, rather than the submissive O’s,” said Greene. “I drew reality-based composites of people I’ve known from the BDSM culture and incorporated them into these rich characters.”
Dita Von Teese, author of Your Beauty Mark, says: “For me, reading Master of O evoked old feelings and also stirred new ones. The story has the quality of lived experience, elegantly yet explicitly capturing the way a certain elite likes to play. Modern erotica seems to have recently piqued interest of the mainstream, but Master of O keeps its promises!” Margaret Cho, author of I’m the One I Want, also heralded the book: “Sexy, decadent, powerful and fun – exactly what you want in a date or in a book!”
Master of O is a completely new genre of romantic fiction that’s aimed at readers interested in the dynamics of power-based relationships, an appreciation for noir fiction and appetite for something more stimulating than Fifty Shades of Grey.
“The sex in Master of O is unlike any sex non-kinky readers have ever encountered before,” adds Greene. “Its shocks and discoveries and contradictions will be unexpected on every page.”
