The publishing world has surprised us again with news this morning of a new E. L. James novel to be published in just eighteen days!
Vintage Books said in a statement that the author wrote the book in response to reader demand. “This book is dedicated to those readers who asked…and asked…and asked for this,” James writes in the book’s opening pages.

Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian
Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair.
He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist.
Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.
