The powerfully erotic memoir that inspired the legendary film—with a new afterword by the author's daughter
Niine and a Half Weeks is a true story so unusual, so passionate, and so extreme in its psychology and sexuality that it will take your breath away.
Elizabeth McNeill was an executive for a large corporation when she began an affair with a man she met in a chance encounter. Their sexual excitement depended on domination and humiliation, and as their relationship progressed they played out increasingly dangerous and elaborate variations on that pattern. By the end, Elizabeth had relinquished all control over her body—and her mind.
With a cool detachment that makes the experiences and sensations she describes all the more frightening in their intensity, Elizabeth McNeill deftly unfolds her story and invites you into the mesmerizing and shocking world of Nine and a Half Weeks—a world you won't soon forget.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Elizabeth McNeill is a pseudonym. At the time of the books writing and original publication, McNeill lived in New York, where she worked as an executive for a large corporation.

This is what 50 Shades should have been but wasn't. This is a short little book you can read in one evening, based on a true story. Much, much, better than the movie.Published 7 months ago by Ron Penn
