Sadeian recommendations

At Five Books Charles Styles has a Q & A with the translator of a new Penguin Classics edition of the Marquis de Sade's The 120 Days of Sodom (which, alas, I haven't seen yet; get your copy at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk), where Will McMorran recommends the best books on the Marquis de Sade. Not quite sure about all the choices -- which actually include two by de Sade -- but I've actually read the first four, and saw the fifth on DVD (this last being -- by far -- the one I was least impressed by, though that might also be influenced by the medium; maybe I should check out the playscript).
