SEE THE WORLD OF FIFTY SHADES OF GREY ANEW THROUGH THE EYES OF CHRISTIAN GREY FROM THE 125 MILLION COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, E L JAMES.
E L James is an incurable romantic and a self-confessed fan-girl.
After twenty-five years of working in television, she decided to
pursue a childhood dream and write stories that readers could take
to their hearts. The result was the controversial and sensuous
romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty
Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. In 2015, she
published the no. 1 bestseller Grey, the story of Fifty
Shades of Grey from the perspective of Christian Grey, and in
2017, the chart-topping Darker, the second part of the Fifty
Shades story from Christian's point of view. Her books have been
published in forty-eight languages and have sold more than 150
million copies worldwide.
E L James has been recognised as one of Time magazine's 'Most Influential People in the World' and Publishers Weekly's 'Person of the Year'. Fifty Shades of Grey stayed on the New York Times Best Seller List for 133 consecutive weeks. Fifty Shades Freed won the Goodreads Choice Award (2012), and Fifty Shades of Grey was selected as one of the 100 Great Reads, as voted by readers, in PBS's The Great American Read (2018). Darker has been long-listed for the 2019 International DUBLIN Literary Award.
She co-produced for Universal Studios the Fifty Shades movies, which made more than a billion dollars at the box office. The third instalment, Fifty Shades Freed, won the People's Choice Award for Drama in 2018.
E L James is blessed with two wonderful sons and lives with her husband, the novelist and screenwriter Niall Leonard, and their West Highland terriers in the leafy suburbs of West London.
Christian Grey's candid narrative gives the familiar story a raw,
passionate and much sexier context ... the Ana that Christian Grey
sees: sexy, seductive, witty and in his own words "a siren". She
displays a compelling blend of vulnerability and backbone and
finally feels like a character women can get behind ... Best of all
the book allows readers direct access to Christian Grey's deepest,
darkest thoughts ... It is fascinating to read the story with fresh
eyes too, having glimpsed Christian's traumatic childhood and
gained an understanding of his motivations. More realistic and far
racier than anything EL James has written before, Grey was
definitely worth the wait. Frankly it gives the first three books a
much-deserved spanking. * Daily Express *

This new book, as with the trilogy and the movie, puts women's sexual desires out into the open, which can only be a good thing. -- Liz Jones * The Mail on Sunday *
