Who was Walter?
I would like to invite you to join me in the quest to find the true identity of ‘Walter‘, the anonymous author of My Secret Life, the erotic diaries of a Victorian English gentleman printed privately in 1888. These extraordinarily unusual memoirs are a uniquely important & valuable resource on female sexual behaviour in the 19th century.
For the past ten years I have, on a daily basis, lived & breathed this extraordinary work, by turning it into an ‘audiofilm‘, an audio book with a specially composed original music score.
As a result my intimate knowledge of the diaries & the clues to the author’s identity that lie hidden within some of the pages are unsurpassed!
In this blog I will be sharing with you the intriguing discoveries that I have already made. They will take you on a diverse & fascinating journey through the Victorian age, from the oblique perspective of the author’s prurient eye.
