The Exploits of a Young Don Juan recounts the sexual coming of age of Roger amidst his entourage of naive and not so naive woman while his father is away on business. And Roger surely plays while the cat is away, possessing a virility and manhood to match, as he seduces those around him into the most compromising scenes and situations with his lascivious will.
From the author who brought us Eleven Thousand Rods, a work banned in France until 1970, Guillame Apollinaire succeeds in emulating the Libertine ideas and doctrines gleaned from the Marquis De Sade. Told in a wonderfully graphic prose that will be sure to shock and entertain, this gem of Edwardian erotic makes a fine addition to any collection of the once-forbidden.
The original 1907 manuscript of this work, gifted to Picasso, was one of the artist's most prized possessions.
