ERICA JONG    Book Number: 88455    Product format: Paperback

By the bestselling author of 'Fear of Flying' is a journey back 2,600 years to inhabit the mind of the greatest love poet the world has ever known. At the age of 14, Sappho is seduced by the beautiful poet Alcaeus and plots with him to overthrow the dictator of their island. When they are caught, she is married off to a repellent older man in hopes that matrimony will keep her out of trouble. Instead, she starts off on a series of amorous adventures with both men and women, taking her from Delphi to Egypt, and even to the Land of the Amazons and the shadowy realm of Hades. Jong's Sappho is a poet, mother, wife and embattled noblewoman who wants it all. What a fun romp, where pleasure and good sex is recreated in the classical world and a startling adventure and historical fantasy. 338pp in paperback.
