252 pp. 6 (of 7?) inserted b/w glossy-paper, erotic illustrations. 9" x 7" It is rumored that Grushenka was written by the "famed B-movie producer-writer of the 1940?s classic films" I Walked with a Zombie and Curse of the Cat People, Val Lewton, at the beginning of his career while trying to support his growing family (Gertz). The idea of it being translated from the Russian and printed in Paris is almost definitely untrue, and it was most likely published by Percy Shostac in New York. It tells the story of Grushenka, a young serf girl sold into slavery and prostitution, who matures and awakens sexually in her strange and abusive surroundings, and eventually embraces her sexuality and makes a career and name for herself in her sphere.
