From the internationally acclaimed author of The House of the Spirits and Daughter of Fortune comes a magical book, exploring the intimate connections between food and sex. An epicurean's handbook, Aphrodite is an irresistible fusion of titillating recipes, lovers' spells, poems about sex and eating, and hilarious, sensuous stories. This is a book Bacchus would have been proud of, including chapters on Cooking in the Nude; Death by
Perfume; The Orgy and - not least - Sauces and Other Essential Fluids. Filled with bawdy, lurid, unfettered, Rabelaisian fun, this is a bewitching and entertaining feast.
