Résumé / Summary : "Poet John Glassco wrote a great many unusual and eccentric works during his career, and ranks among the finest Canadian authors of the 20th Century. This particular title, published under the pseudonym "Miles Underwood," has achieved status as a must-have in your BDSM library. It is the account of Harriet Marwood, summoned to tutor the son of a 19th Century Victorian businessman, Arthur Lovel, whose wife has died, in the proper way to conduct himself, and to quit what is wonderfully termed "self-effacing." Our Ms. Marwood soon takes over the house, leaving the businessman free to consort with Kate, his whore, and the boy, young Richard, at her mercy, where he most wants to be." Source: Olympia
