On Undefended Flesh:
The Memoir of an Obedient Girl

When a young woman moves to London, leaving behind her sheltered life in Hungary, she stumbles across the world of submission. Out of a desperate need for money as well as deeper motives that become apparent, she resolves to explore this strange and often violent subculture. This is her astonishing true account of the events that followed.

Under her alias Shana Shine she reveals the reality of life as a submissive – the comic role-plays, discipline, humiliation and beatings. The centrepiece of the book is a bizarre “love” relationship she forms with one of her clients, a well-known and respected businessman. Candid, often humorous and sometimes disturbing, Shana's memoir is an unforgettable journey and a moving insight as to why one woman would decide on a life of corporal pain.

Fiction

Little Pleasure Little Pain

Little Pleasure Little Pain

Set in Victorian times, this is the story of Jack and Lucy, a brother and sister who have grown up together in their father's opium den in central London. A dark and troubled character, Jack is befriended by a flamboyant young artist called Solomon, who introduces Jack to “The Brotherhood”, an avant-garde group dedicated to a revolutionary new appraisal of art. A chance encounter between Solomon and Lucy develops into a budding romance, but will their love be strong enough to survive the machinations of Jack?

This beautifully written and often hilarious novel brilliantly captures the mood of that era. With interesting characters such as Mr Dancey, a mysterious figure who represents fate, as well as cameo appearances by Charles Dickens and William Turner, this is a book to savour. Little Pleasure Little Pain is Hannah Dickenson's first novel, and heralds the arrival of a promising writing talent.
