Venus in India (Paperback)


Venus in India (1889) is an erotic novel by Charles Devereaux. Published pseudonymously, the novel is styled as the autobiography of its fictional author, a young British Cavalry officer whose deployment in India is filled with romantic escapades. "The war in Afghanistan appeared to be coming to a close when I received sudden orders to proceed, at once, from England to join the First Battalion of my regiment, which was then serving there. I had just been promoted Captain and had been married about eighteen months." Sent to India on a last minute military assignment, Captain Devereaux takes his time arriving at his final destination on the North West Frontier. Along the way, he stops in Nowshera and Cherat, where he wastes no time romancing the wives and daughters of his fellow soldiers. First with the lovely Lizzie Wilson, and then with the daughters of Colonel Selwyn, Charles Devereaux gives himself over to passion and desire, forgetting about his wife and young child at home. Graphic and graceful, comic and provocative, Venus in India is a shining example of nineteenth century erotica in which the power of words to arouse is on full display. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Charles Devereaux's Venus in India is a classic of Victorian erotica reimagined for modern readers.
