A bestselling author in his time, Pierre Louÿs (1870–1925) was a friend of, and influence on, André Gide, Paul Valéry, Oscar Wilde and Stephane Mallarmé among others. He achieved instant notoriety with Aphrodite and The Songs of Bilitis, but it was only after his death that Louÿs' true legacy was to be discovered: nearly 900 pounds of erotic manuscripts were found in his home, all of them immediately scattered among collectors and many subsequently lost. Since then, it has become clear that Louÿs is the greatest French writer of erotica there ever was. The Young Girl's Handbook of Good Manners was the first of his erotic manuscripts to see publication, and it also remains his most outrageous―an erotic classic in which humor takes precedence over arousal. By means of shockingly filthy advice―ostensibly offered “for use in educational establishments”―couched in a hilariously parodic admonitory tone, Louÿs turns late-nineteenth-century manners roundly on their head, with ass prominently skyward. Whether offering rules for etiquette in church, school or home, or outlining a girl's duties toward family, neighbor or God, Louÿs manages to mock every institution and leave no taboo unsullied. The Young Girl's Handbook of Good Manners has only grown more scandalous and subversive since its first appearance in 1926.

I received this book quickly and all shipping issues were taken care of immediately.
This book is fantastic, as are most of Louÿs' works. It's got that perfectly dry sense of erotic humor that's amusing to read yourself or as a gift for a friend.
I am looking forward to reading his other books.

If you have a friend who likes dirty humor and thinks sex jokes are hilarious, buy them this book for a gift. It's an absolute riot, I keep mine on my coffee table and it makes a good conversation starter. Although, you should definitely hide it when your parents come over as it is very ridiculous. I believe you can read a good portion of the book on Google Books, check it out!

I had a blast flipping through this book! It's one of the most witty pornographic readings I had for quite a while.

I'm proud to be the first to review this little gem which I discovered by pure chance in a bookstore.

I'd often read of Louys' pornographic writing, yet everything I'd read (mostly poetry) was very tame by today's standards, though beautiful.

This short book is a whole 'nother story. Wow. Louÿs addresses this anti-etiquette book to "little girls" - in other words children - and gives page after page of such diabolical advice like urging them to never tell daddy that their brother forced them to perform oral sex; to never masturbate with a statue of the virgin marry; or to never masturbate in a confessional "so that you can be absolved immediately afterwards." But Louÿs pulls it off with wonderful comedic skill, pretending to be dead-serious the whole time, and the book doesn't read like mere vulgarity, but rather as supreme wit. When I read it, I laughed out loud (literally) page after page.

The book is also worthy of a deeper reading beyond the superficial comic side. I don't think the book can be dismissed as "just a joke". There is obviously a strong element of both fantasy and truth in this work. It brings up a really controversial question about child sexuality, and whether it exists or not. Louÿs seems to assume undoubtedly that it naturally does, and on an astounding level. It's also interesting to read that pornographic literature in 1926 was just as decadent (if not more so) as it is today. Child sexuality remains a very dreaded taboo in much of the world.

The translation reads wonderfully, keeping the charm of the 19th century style and yet enjoying itself of modern slang, and the book is very slim and comfortable. You can read it in one sitting. I think it makes a great gift for granddaughters.
