Dangerous Liaisons

Read by Nicholas Boulton, Georgina Sutton, Lucy Scott, Gunnar Cauthery, Clare Wille, Richenda Carey, Penelope Rawlins, Jonathan Keeble, David Timson & John Foley


First appearing in 1782, Dangerous Liaisons is one of the most scandalous and controversial novels in European literature. The plot unfolds through a series of letters as the two main protagonists, the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, attempt to bring about the seduction of a young woman.

The epistolary nature of the novel gives a multi-faceted perspective of the action, which places the book firmly in the tradition of libertine literature. The notoriety that the novel achieved on its initial publication has ensured its continued popularity, with its wit and style appealing to readers up to the present day.
