The story of V is anonymous for many reasons.
The most important reason is to protect the identity of the subject of the story: a beautiful woman who has all she wants in life; a husband; wealth; adoring friends; a fashionable career; a loyal best friend - and oft-time lover; and yet she seeks insatiably to fulfil her sexual desires with other men (and sometimes women) putting at risk the life she holds so dear.
The story is related by her best friend, an anonymous male narrator, who has been her friend since they met 15 years ago at university, their friendship and loyalty is so strong that they often can be described as lovers. V constantly regales him with her sexual adventures, sometimes to amuse, sometimes to horrify, sometimes (he suspects) to turn him on; which they do. He hangs off her every word, often worrying about how far she will push herself and what she is risking and yet never judging her. Their relationship thrives on this unspoken complicity. And, after all...sometimes she allows him re-enact her sex ploits...
