    Beschreibung

    If you could go back in time 2600 years and get inside the head of the greatest singer of love the world has ever known, Sappho's Leap would be the result. An odyssey of love and adventure which spans the ancient world, Erica Jong's witty, sensuous and compellingly readable new novel, tells the story of a passionate woman who was ahead of her time and whose songs have proven to be immortal. Jong's Sappho is a sort of female Odysseus, stretching the boundaries of time and space, journeying not only into the reality of the ancient world but also into lands of myth and legend which have shaped the way we imagine our lives today. Born on the island of Lesbos circa 600 BCE, Sappho falls madly in love with the dashing poet Alcaeus, plots with him to overthrow the dictator of her island, is caught and exiled and married off to a repellent older man in the hopes that matrimony will keep her out of trouble. It does no such thing, instead it starts her off on a series of amorous adventures with both women and men which take her from Syracuse to Delphi to Egypt and even to the Land of the Amazons and the shadowy realm of Hades. Fearless, heroic, yet full of vulnerability, Erica Jong's Sappho is one of her most unforgettable and exuberant heroines. - See more at: http://www.ericajong.com/sapphosleap.htm#sthash.N6X9s1Zv.dpuf
