Editorial Reviews

Playboy
It is not necessary to take the Marquis seriously as a philosopher of total freedom, as some do, in order to relish the imagination and talent that went into gilding the nuggets of naughtiness contained here.
Newsweek
Sade was one of themost radical minds of Western history, one that touched, with an astonishing fusion of madness and cold rationality, on some of the most central aspects of psychic life....He remains a great, horrifying, but also vastly illuminating figure.
NY Times Book Review
The Marquis is a missionary. He has written a new religion. Juliette is one of the holy books.

What People are saying about this

Lester G. Crocker
Sade speaks with loudest voice to our town time, and through our own time, for it is our age that has had to live the truths he revealed, to live through the night he uncovered.
