Reviews

"Permission is certainly erotic, but it never goes for the cheap thrills. Vogel's writing is thoughtful and lushly descriptive about everything...[F]or readers who love a good character study, especially one erotically tinged, this fits the bill." -- Booklist
"New and Noteworthy" feature, New York Times Book Review
"In her elegant and compelling debut novel, the American writer Saskia Vogel sets about taking down the patriarchy, the Hollywood dream machine and the prejudices against people who are into BDSM." -- Irish Times, "Compelling take on sex and power in L.A."
"As Saskia Vogel's fascinating and beautiful debut novel Permission illustrates, [BDSM is] not simply about marrying pleasure and pain, but self-actualization." -- The Rumpus
"Part prose poem, part Penthouse Letter, Vogel's debut novel...is both titillating and tender." -- Oprah Magazine
