Léon Courbouleix’s second Suzon escapade was privately published two years after the first, and is even more fantastic than his description of his heroine’s holiday in the countryside. Now Suzon is getting married to the rake Boby, and she and her sister Jane, not to mention everyone else involved in the wedding, are two years more sexually experienced.

For the full range of sexual encounters from flagellation to orgies, Courbouleix’s Le mariage de Suzon is a feast on every level. Of course, it helps a great deal to have at least a reading knowledge of French …


Le mariage de Suzon was published ‘Aux dépens des amis de Cupidon’ (‘at the expense of the friends of Cupid’) in a limited numbered edition of 210 copies. At least one pirated edition from the late 1930s exists, and there is also a 1996 smaller-format reprint published by La Petite Collection.
