This is the autobiography of a very accomplished sexual adventurer who drops names shamelessly.
As a very successful editor of some top literary journals of his day, Frank Harris (1855-1931) had influence among the likes of George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, Oscar Wilde, Walt Whitman, and hundreds of other high society folk. He lived a passionate, bawdy life despite the constraints of the Victorian era.
His personality gained him fond admirers as well as bitter enemies. He is said to have visited every socially important home BUT ONLY ONCE.
This text had been banned in Britain and the United States because of its erotic and politically unsavory content. It's more about all the people Frank Harris knew than it is about himself. (The index is eleven pages of people's names, including William Shakespeare and Jesus Christ, with whom Harris was obsessed.)
Foreword by Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange.
Paperback; 908 pages.
