Taken from Juliette, the Marquis de Sade's epic of vice, the episode of MINSKI THE CANNIBAL is one of the most horrific and depraved in all of the author's canon. Whilst venturing in remote mountains, Juliette and her companions are accosted by Minski, a giant who devours human flesh, and taken to his castle. There they witness obscene rites of sexual carnage, played out in a subterranean slaughterhouse for human cattle. This special ebook edition of MINSKI THE CANNIBAL also includes an illuminating essay by Sade scholar Maurice Heine - newly translated into English for the first time - on Sade as progenitor of the gothic novel.
