The Marquis de Sade's notorious 1791 novel is narrated by Justine, who recounts the story of her life before being executed for her crimes. It is a tale of degradation, torture, and sexual slavery, and was so shocking it resulted in the arrest of its anonymous author. De Sade would spend the final thirteen years of his life in prison. Napoleon called Justine "the most abominable book ever engendered by the most depraved imagination."
