    This is the lurid and compelling story of the sexual awakening of Maria Luisa Ruiz-Poveda y Garcia de la Casa - affectionately known by her family as Lulu. The Ages of Lulu is a marvel of intense eroticism - the sexiest book to burst onto the international literary scene since Story of O.Though Lulu had a relatively happy childhood, she is haunted by memories of hand-me-downs and parental neglect. Often left to her own devices, Lulu finds that her erotic cravings are already powerfully established when, at fifteen, she is seduced by her older brother's best friend. Pablo is twelve years her senior, a worldly-wise poet, and an intimate friend of the family. His eagerness to play the roles of both father-figure and lover makes him seem the perfect partner, and Lulu's secret pleasure at her submissive role - and its subversion - spurs them on. Lulu has always been fascinated by the thin line separating decency and morality from perversion, and now Pablo gives her the courage to explore the darker side of her carnal desires.When Pablo returns after a few years studying and teaching in America, he finds a young woman sexually experienced and fearless, challenging even his imagination. They marry and begin an emotionally charged and erotically adventurous relationship, but Pablo's promiscuous nature and the dark passions he has helped Lulu discover provoke her to embark on a series of dubious sexual encounters. Lulu at first finds gratification in this brush with low-life characters of all sexual inclinations, but as her forays become increasingly desperate, the world of illicit and dangerous sex threatens to engulf her completely.
