Very good. No reading creases, light creasing of covers, () It's the dog days of summer in 1895. Freud's uncorked his essay on hysteria and female sexuality. Clara Weiss, submissive and anti-heroic, is stranded with her new husband, Edmond, in a Nova Scotia house rented from Captain Ian Ryder, who soon leaves to explore the Arctic. Edmond's an acrid lout. Time not devoured by his mushroom fetish is devoted to terrorizing Clara with raw meat, sensory deprivation, free-flowing morphine, and ritual defilement.
