This classic book of erotica is, alongside Story of O , the most famous French underground novel of the late twentieth century and a work of seductive literary merit.

It begins with nineteen-year-old Emmanuelle's flight from London to join her husband in Bangkok. On the airplane, she is seduced by the passenger seated next to her. By the time they land, she has indulged her irrepressible and insatiable sexual appetite, embarking on an odyssey of hedonistic sensual discovery that takes her from the arms of her husband to intimate encounters with the wives of his business associates, to further explorations wherein the philosophical and aesthetic facets of eroticism are expounded--and enacted--to the fullest degree.

Intoxicating and intelligent, Emmanuelle , which has sold hundreds of thousands of copies since its initial clandestine publication in France, follows one woman's liberation from unconscious to intensely conscious sexuality. It is as pertinent today as it was four decades ago.
