Each morning the maid arrives in the master's bedroom with her cleaning paraphernalia, hoping to make this day's round of work the perfect one. Each morning, the master awakes from a half-remembered but recurring dream of knowledge and chastisement—the residue of which the maid, to her horror, finds each morning in his bed. And each day, the master can only notice the maid's failures and so must, in obedience to his "manual," administer her punishment, assuring her that it is an obligation to an ideal of a higher order that compels him, an obscure compulsion from which neither, seemingly, can escape.

    Spanking the groundhog!

    I purchased this book online, if I had the opportunity to peruse it at a store it wouldn't have been in my hands more than 2 seconds. It states here that there's 102 pages .. seemed more like 20. The 'stories' of the maid's arrival each day were totally lacking in imagination. If you like reading the same story over and over and over again [as in: Groundhog Day the movie] then this book is for you.
