Banned for over eighty years in the west and still illegal in Kyrgyzstan, the anonymously written My Secret Life is as scandalous now as it was when first published in the 1880's. Edited and compiled into eleven volumes years after the author had died and decades after the diary had had its last entry, the sexual escapades of Walter, a privileged London gentleman is nothing less than astonishing. In raw descriptive accounts of a personal obsession with women, Walter takes us with him on his travels through the "baudy houses" of the slums, to musty European bars and to the servant quarters of friends and relatives (whilst not neglecting the company of those friends and relatives along the way); My Secret Life is a rare insight into the lives of peoples from opposite worlds. Walter fills in the gaps that Dickens left out and leaves us a rich understanding of the dreams and reality of Victorian Britain.
“…In the night of the same day the Lord appeared to me and stood in my prayer room. This divine visitation was physical, for the Lord sat down and commanded me to write at the same time all that He would say. Then Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ spoke to me and said….” - IYKE NATHAN UZORMA
"Dr. Wessington-Worth provides a well studied account of the possible authorship of the books, and outlines the furtive printed history which has enabled them to survive from first availability to present day."
