My Mother, Madame Edwarda and The Dead Man is the title of a 1989 edition by Marion Boyars Publishers of three stories by Georges Bataille: My Mother, Madame Edwarda, The Dead Man. It comes with essays by Yukio Mishima and Ken Hollings translated by Austryn Wainhouse describes these works as:

My Mother, Madame Edwarda and The Dead Man comprises three short pieces of erotic prose that fuse elements of sex and spirituality in a highly personal vision of the flesh. They present a world of sensation in which only the vaulting demands of disruptive excess and the anguish of heightened awareness can combat the stultifying world of reason and social order. Each of the narratives contains a sense of intoxication and insanity so carefully delineated by the author that it seems to infect the reader.rinting. --marionboyars.co.uk
