  • Leash

    Price: $12.95

    While her “current” spends the summer researching public housing in Stockholm, a moderately wealthy, object-oppressed, and terminally hip New York female of a certain age seeks adventure in the sedate dyke bars of lower Manhattan. Finding none, she answers a personal ad. She is ordered to put on a blindfold before the first meeting with the woman she knows only as “Sir.” Not knowing what someone looks like turns out to be freeing, as do the escalating constraints that alienate her not just from her former life but from her very conception of who she is. Part Georges Bataille, part Fran Leibowitz, this is the Story of O told with a self-referentially perverse sense of humor. Leash extends the logic of s/m to its inexorable and startling conclusion, darkly and hilariously revealing the masochistic impulse as the urge to disappear from the chores, obligations, and emotional vacuity of daily life.

Her “meditations” weirdly intersect with his–in the racially divided and bohemian Boston of the 1960s. Henrietta, confused by the spectacle of her own life, channels the insights of saints East and West with heartbreaking clarity.
