About the Book

John Cleland wrote the 18th-century sexual romance Memoirs of Fanny Hill. The story centers on Fanny Hill, a young person from a low-income household who moves to London in quest of employment. She starts a life as a prostitute there after being lured by Charles. The letters Fanny sends to an unidentified friend, documenting her intercourse with several customers, serve as the basis for her account. She soon earns the title of mistress of Mr. H, a rich man, but her joy is fleeting.
Memoirs of Fanny Hill continues to be a key work in the history of erotic writing and a turning point in the representation of female sexuality in literature despite the controversy.

About Author

John Cleland

English author John Cleland (1709–1789) is well known for Memoirs of Fanny Hill, a contentious and significant book. He was born in London, went to Westminster School, and afterwards joined the British Army. Cleland resorted to writing after leaving the military and produced a variety of books, plays, and poetry. Due to its sexual nature, his most well-known book, Memoirs of Fanny Hill, generated a great deal of debate. Initially, the book was outlawed in England, and Cleland was detained and accused of obscenity. The book was however kept in print and is now recognized as a significant turning point in the development of erotic fiction. Cleland lived abroad for a large portion of his life and worked as a diplomat in addition to being a writer. He died in France in 1789. Despite the controversy surrounding his writing, Cleland is regarded as a significant contributor to the evolution of English literature, especially for his work in the erotic fiction subgenre.
