An instant blockbuster in Italy where it has sold over 700,000 copies, and now an international literary phenomenon, 100 Strokes of the Brush Before Bed is the fictionalized memoir of Melissa P., a Sicilian teenager whose quest for love rapidly devolves into a shocking journey of sexual discovery.Melissa begins her diary a virgin, but a stormy affair at the age of fourteen leads her to regard sex as a means of self-discovery, and for the next two years she plunges into a succession of encounters with various partners, male and female, her age and much older, some met through schoolmates, others through newspaper ads and Internet chat rooms. In graphic detail she describes her entry into a Dante-esque underworld of eroticism, where she willingly participates in group sex and sadomasochism, as well as casual pickups. Melissa's secret life is concealed from family and friends, revealed only in her diary entries.Told with disarming candor, Melissa P.'s bittersweet tour of extreme desires is as poignant as it is titillating. One Hundred Strokes of the Brush Before Bed is a stunning erotic debut, a Story of O for our times.

Scrivere una recensione su un libro tanto famoso è quasi inutile, penso sia già stato detto tutto, ma d'altronde perché non dire anche la mia? Brevemente: dopo aver sentito parlare per anni di questo diario autobiografico (o al...

Ma come si può pubblicare un libro brutto come questo e poi volerci anche far credere che l'autrice ha scritto cose realmente accadute!

This book wasn't erotic just an uncomfortable read. It is horribly overwritten and the "erotic" encounters told in such a detached way that they're not at all sexy. This is a story about a young girl who needs some serious psychological help. She seems to purposely choose sexual partners who will ne...

Beh, ci sarebbero MOLTE cose da dire, ma dirò solamente che l'ho letto quando avevo 17/18 anni e l'ho considerato un libro umoristico.. è decisamente uno dei libri che non riprenderò più in mano.
