Mafia capo, Antonio Spinelli blew through my orderly life like a cyclone.

Gorgeous and passionate, with a breathtaking brutality, he put me under his spell the moment he touched me, drawing me into his underworld of risk, violence and betrayal.

And I found, just as this sophisticated savage didn’t trust me, I didn’t trust myself. Something happened to me. Some alchemy from the heat between us.

I discovered I was a savage, too.

Тайная книга английской классики

Самая интересная книга на иностранном языке – непереведенная книга. Изюминкой английской классики в этом смысле является «My secret life» («Моя тайная жизнь»), написанная неизвестным автором в последней трети XIX века.

Впервые книга была напечатана анонимно в 1888 году. Кто ее написал – до сих пор идут споры. Значительная часть исследователей полагают, что автор – Генри Спенсер Эшби, торговец текстилем, путешественник, страстный букинист и коллекционер эротики, умерший в 1900 году. Он входил в кружок викторианских вольнодумцев – писателей (например, поэт Суинберн) и людей искусства, которые задыхались в атмосфере ханжества и фарисейства. После смерти от него осталось (помимо капиталов) грандиозное собрание порнографии и изданий Сервантеса, которое он завещал Британскому музею при условии принятия на хранение и эротической части его коллекции.

Как бы там ни было, «My secret life» вошла в историю мировой литературы именно как анонимная книга, отражающая нравы викторианской Англии, которые были в известных кругах совсем не викторианскими. Точнее, это 11-томный эпос, повествующий о поиске сексуального счастья на протяжении всей своей жизни мужчиной из среднего класса. Мужчиной, которому выпало родиться в ту эпоху, когда все связанное с полом загонялось либо под запрет, либо в самые тесные рамки. Мало на свете книг, в которых с подобной тщательностью описывались все интимные переживания человека от почти младенческого возраста до старости, причем литературно талантливо.

«My secret life» – уникальный документ как эпохи, так и человеческого существования вообще. Книга является существенными и необходимым дополнением к романам Диккенса и Теккерея, поскольку без нее представление о нравах Англии того времени будет либо неполным, либо неверным.

Джейн Остин писала гениальные книги о любви, ни разу никого не поцеловав и прожив жизнь стареющей девой на содержании у родственников. Психологию полов она постигала из косвенных свидетельств и собственных невинных наблюдений. Природная одаренность сделала свое дело, «Гордость и предубеждение», как и другие ее книги, стали классикой. Автор «My secret life» далеко не гений, но честность, абсолютная свобода от каких бы то ни было условностей, пунктуальность описаний делают его эпопею столь же значимой для изучающих ту эпоху, как и романы Остин.

Любопытен язык книги – бесхитростно-физиологический, называющий без стеснения вещи своими именами, при этом не показушно-вульгарный. Автор не знает эвфемизмов для обозначения известных частей человеческого тела и специфических глаголов, используя повседневные обороты мужчин его круга – даже по сегодняшним меркам чрезвычайно грубые. Тут нельзя не вспомнить удивление и возмущение Горького, обиженного тем, что граф Толстой, беседуя с ним о женщинах, употреблял подобные же «мужицкие» слова. Горький подумал было, что великий писатель земли русской подделывается под его «невежество», и лишь потом понял, что для Толстого это было вполне органично.

Так и автор «My secret life» показывает нам, что в Викторианскую эпоху ханжество касалось лишь известной части публики, тогда как большая часть народонаселения Британии выражалась весьма прямолинейно. Хотя нравы человечества во все времена и во всех странах, в общем-то, одинаковы. В «My secret life» рисуется типичное становление мужчины, которое могло бы иметь место и в Японии, и в России, и где угодно. Викторианские нравы лишь откладывали некий отпечаток на личность, но не могли задавить присущих ей стремлений. В Англии XIX века герой книги мог «охотиться» лишь на горничных и дочек батраков, «приличные» женщины были для него почти недоступны (за некоторыми исключениями). В этом – специфика эпохи. Сегодня бы автор «My secret life» не знал подобных препятствий и мог вести «большую игру». С другой стороны, в XIX веке для него считалось допустимым то, что сегодня бы моментально было бы зачислено под статью «педофилия» или «изнасилование». Сексуальная инициация героя воспоминаний произошла именно в результате настойчивого и совсем непристойного преследования барчуком невинной малолетней няньки своего братца. Служанка как объект первой интимной связи – сюжет достаточно обыденный для того времени, стоит только почитать Чехова, Бунина или Кафку. Сегодня ее заменяет одноклассница или однокурсница, или просто девушка из соседнего двора. В XIX столетии ровесницы из соседнего благополучного семейства были абсолютно недоступны.

Думается, современным феминисткам эта книга придется не по вкусу, несмотря на любовь на Западе ко всяким аутеничным картинкам нравов. Женщина для автора «My secret life» – не равноправный партнер, а объект наслаждения. Он порой видит в них личность, но слишком увлечен иным, чтобы вдаваться в этические переживания. К тому же для преуспевающего представителя среднего класса проститутки и горничные не слишком интересные собеседницы, они не люди его круга, а в то время социальная иерархия была куда жестче, чем сегодня, культурные различия между господами и слугами являлись почти непреодолимыми. Барин взаимодействовал со служанкой только в парадигме «хозяин–слуга» или в постели, где джентльмен мог позволить себе немного забыть о принадлежности к разным классам, не теряя, однако, из виду свое превосходство. Никаких нежностей вроде букетов цветов или стишков в таких мезальянсах не существовало. Господин считал, что и так оказал служанке много чести самим фактом, что обратил на нее внимание.

Любопытно сравнить «My secret life» с известным романом Джона Фаулза «Женщина французского лейтенанта» – как раз о том же самом времени. Тогда как герой Фаулза полон экзистенциальных томлений, а роман насыщен философскими размышлениями, герой «My secret life» ломает голову только над алгоритмом соблазнения очередной жертвы и чужд всякой философии, равно как и морали. Но он – реален, он человек из крови и плоти, а герой Фаулза – выдуманный и слишком книжный, как и остальные персонажи его романа. Можно полагать, что нынешним читателям покажется более интересным и волнующим рассказ анонима о своем времени, чем наукообразные домыслы писателя, жившего сто лет спустя.

В год своего первого издания «My secret life» шла по разряду утонченной порнографии. Сегодня историки английской литературы признают ее художественные достоинства, и книга изучается в университетах, по ней защищают диссертации. O tempore, o mores!

From Publishers Weekly

Xaviera Hollander has been writing a Penthouse column for 30 years. She chronicled her life as a "high-class New York madam" in 1972's The Happy Hooker: My Own Story, which now returns to print. Frankly discussing lesbianism, bondage, voyeurism and run-ins with lawyers and the FBI, Hollander's book was an international bestseller. In her new epilogue, Hollander rather questionably attests that although her stories may not be as shocking or taboo now as they were in 1972, "the business of sex [has] a new relevance" since September 11. Regan Books will also publish Hollander's new memoir, Child No More, in June (a review will run in an upcoming issue).

From Library Journal

Dutch madam Hollander scored big with this 1972 autobiography, which became a best seller 15 million copies worldwide. Although the book ended up in the hands of respectable readers, it's little more than smut, as Hollander recounts how she left Holland for a job as a secretary in New York, got bored, and became a prostitute and brothel manager (doesn't everybody?). Three decades later, when you can find raunchier stuff on prime-time TV, this is kind of kitschy. This 30th-anniversary edition contains a new epilog.

***

An astute historian of New York prostitution might have heard a small bell ringing in their head upon reading the name of the woman accused of arranging prostitutes for Eliot’s Emperors Club VIP: Tanya Hollander. You see, New York’s most notorious prostitute (and madam) ever, the Happy Hooker, was named Xaveria Hollander. Was it now a family business? We called the old girl in Amsterdam to check.

“No, she’s not my daughter,” Hollander tells us from what she refers to as her “bed and brothel” on Amsterdam’s Gold Coast. “But it’s a wickedly chosen nom de plume.” (We prefer to think of it as a "nom de poon.") Was the Happy Hooker herself shocked by the news of Spitzer’s dalliances? Not really, save for the prices being bandied about. “Is that what they get paid these days?” she asks, referring to the $5,000 allegedly earned by Ashley Alexandra Dupré. “I was in the $100 bracket.”

Let's talk quality of clientele. Is Spitzer really that big of a deal? Who did Hollander meet in the boudoir? “I had my dealings with the White House,” she says. “But it was more discreet. Newsweek offered to pay me a lot of money if I’d admitted that Sinatra was my client. But I never talked. My affairs we’re never sleazy. I might have mentioned something about a crooner from New Jersey, though…”

Hollander has written eighteen books since her seminal tome in the seventies, in addition to writing the "Call Me Madam" column in Penthouse from 1973 to 2005. Coming soon to a bookstore near you: The Happy Hooker’s Guide to Sex-69 Orgasmic Ways to Pleasure a Woman, from New York’s very own Skyhorse Publishing. We're the hooker capital of the world! -Duff McDonald

Her desire becomes his pleasure...

This novel contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone.

So I hurt her. I pushed her away.

But she left. She went to France for a year, and came back a different girl.

Now, when I push, she pushes back.
