A punch in the face of the puritanism & conservatism he raged against, My Life & Loves is the highly-charged, erotic autobiography of Frank Harris (1856-1931), an Irish writer & editor who founded “Pearson’s Magazine” in the USA (1914-18). When 1st published, the book elicited hostile criticism because of its blunt & frank detail of his sexual exploits, beginning in childhood. A biographer of Oscar Wilde & Shakespeare, Harris fought the US government & postal service over the content of his publications–battles included herein along with his blunt, colorful depictions of his sexual exploits with willing Victorian Age debutantes. My Life & Loves remains a landmark in erotic literature, as relevant & provocative today as it was when 1st privately printed in Paris.
