Sinopsis:

This hallucinatory, lyrical novel posits that the Marquis de Sade, having survived for 178 years after his recorded death in 1814, indulges his obsessive erotic fantasies in the company of initiates - young men and women whom he has invited to his isolated country home. This de Sade drives a Mercedes and is familiar with the modern world of nuclear bombs, cocaine, AIDS, Picasso's Guernica, Hitler, William Burroughs and LSD...Sade's jolting collision with the here and now exposes the moral confusion and emptiness at the heart of our genocidal century."" - Publishers Weekly. ""Cross one of Anne Rice's eerie vampires with the historical Marquis de Sade and you get the protagonist of this provocative but murky novel."" - Library Journal.

From Publishers Weekly:

This hallucinatory, lyrical novel posits that the Marquis de Sade, having survived for 178 years after his recorded death in 1814, indulges his obsessive erotic fantasies in the company of initiates--young men and women--whom he has invited to his isolated country home. This de Sade drives a Mercedes and is familar with the modern world of nuclear bombs, cocaine, AIDS, Picasso's Guernica , Hitler, William Burroughs and LSD. Sade's feverish ruminations on his years of imprisonment, his hatred of conformity and his sexual fetishes are interwoven with the narratives of Jeanne, a prostitute who describes whipping the nihilistic aristocrat; Philippe, a Parisian fashion designer who designs sets and costumes for de Sade's psychodramas; and Stephen, an artist recruited to paint and photograph his host's debaucheries. English novelist/poet Reed (whose novel Delirium re-created the life of Rimbaud) believes that de Sade, who longed to live out the reality of his wounded psychic interior, expressed potentials lurking within each of us. Sade's jolting collision with the here and now exposes the moral confusion and emptiness at the heart of our genocidal century.
