A punch in the face of the puritanism and conservatism he raged against, My Life and Loves is the highly-charged, erotic autobiography of Frank Harris (1856-1931), an Irish writer and editor who founded Pearson's Magazine in the United States (1914-1918). When first published, the book elicited hostile criticism because of its blunt and frank detail of Harris's sexual exploits, beginning in his childhood. A biographer of Oscar Wilde and Shakespeare, Harris fought the U.S. government and postal service over the content of his publications - battles included in My Life and Loves along with Harris's blunt, colorful depictions of his sexual exploits with willing Victorian Age debutantes. My Life and Loves remains a landmark in erotic literature, as relevant and provocative today as it was when first privately printed in Paris.
