The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty

A.N. Roquelaure

Publisher: Plume BooksFormat: Paperback

“Something very special . . . at once so light and yet so haunting.” —The AdvocateIn the traditional folktale of “Sleeping Beauty,” the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. Now Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquelaure, retells the Beauty story and probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the Prince awakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. His reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beauty's complete and total enslavement to him . . . as Anne Rice explores the world of erotic yearning and fantasy in a classic that becomes, with her skillful pen, a compelling experience. Readers of “Fifty Shades of Grey” will indulge in Rice's deft storytelling and imaginative eroticism, a sure-to-be classic for years to come.“Articulate, baroque, and fashionably pornographic.” —Playboy
