A dual collection of erotic literature, Agent Provocateur can be read from both ends: the Pink Side with erotic short stories, articles and poems; or the Dark Side, also made up of stories and poems, but with a wilder, sadomasochistic streak. The book is illustrated with drawings by David Bray. Bound in black and pink embossed covers, with a black silk marker. Sexually explicit.
