KIRKUS REVIEW

In this Story of OW!, Simon, a young peer hijacked into slavery in 18th-century Jamaica, is tortured, suspended in peculiar postures, and flogged into a frito on about every other page. Simon is also forced to rise to the occasion when his mistress summons, and to submit to being buggered by the master--whom he comes to love. Alyx, another slave, is the teen-age daughter of gentry and the two meet in the breeding hut to produce offspring on demand. Night by night affection grows. Finally Alyx and Simon are returned to England and the family manse. Regency ruffles and battered behinds.
