Saskia Vogel: Permission


The debut novel by Saskia Vogel, set on the fringes of Hollywood, deals with loneliness and sadomasochism as well as domination and subjugation. »Rather than pruriently gorging on catharsis, ›Permission‹ foregrounds the emotional intimacy – built on constancy, trust and compassion – that can flourish in the most unconventional relationships.« [Guardian]
