    The secret journal which the Marquis de Sade worked hard at maintaining, even when ill and ageing at Charenton asylum, reveals the shadowy life of an exceptional, strange man whose abuses are often legendary. The book takes use beyond the prisoner who once fled the Vincennes fortress; it also takes us beyond the prisoner of the Bastille whose imagination tortured him, both deliciously and cruelly, and who projected onto paper the burning and pitiable ghosts of his imagination with a desperate sensuality. This book contains the living, everyday presence of the old man, almost 67 years old when the "first notebook" begins of this one-lost journal.He had seven years left to live in the "hospital-prison" of Charenton, where his days were slow and grim, full of everyday preoccupations, worries about money, nasty quarrels with the people around him - but were also lit up by the sordid, squalid episodes of a final erotic adventure: the last flames of his senile passion. At the Charenton asylum, where he was under a liberal regime of surveillance, Sade's death approached, darkening the colours of his life and tearing apart his feelings.Only the first (1807-8) and fourth (1814) of these notebooks have been rediscovered, out of a series of four.The Ghosts of Sodom also includes a selection of Sade's letters from Charenton, as well as the working notes for his terminal novel "The Days At Florbelle" - a huge work deemed so pornographic that the only manuscript was burned by the police at the behest of Sade's own son.

    This volume of the Marquis de Sade's correspondence from prison covers a thirteen-year period, from 1777 when he was incarcerated in the Vincennes fortress near Paris, to 1789 when he was transferred from the Bastille shortly before it was stormed at the outset of the French Revolution, to the Charenton insane asylum, from which he was finally freed on April 2 - Good Friday - 1790. From ever danker and drearier cells, even as his health declined with each passing year, Sade wrote with supreme eloquence and increasing bitterness about the harsh conditions he was forced to endure, using his pen as a deadly weapon to lash out at his tormentors. This collection includes letters to his devoted wife, Renee-Pelagie de Montreuil de Sade; to his hated mother-in-law, the presidente de Montreuil, who put him and kept him in jail; to Milli de Rousset, a woman of wit and spirit whom Sade admired and loved platonically; to his so-called friends; to his jailers; to business associates and employees. In these letters, Sade rails at the hypocrisy of those who condemn him for 'crimes' of which most of his peers - including many of his accusers - are just as guilty as he, while showing his wife a tenderness and care most people have never before associated with the oft-vilified marquis. Almost two centuries after his death, Sade remains a figure of intrigue, a true rebel with a cause, one who despite all attempts to suppress his works remains a vital and enduring influence. B&W illus. 401p.
