The author cast a marvelously original eye on the beloved stories of Greed deities, replete with amorous oddities and escapades. Above them all reigned Zues. The ancients enjoyed his constant adultery, launched after a 300-year honeymoon with his sister-wife Hera. His affairs were often weird and fanciful, an equal opportunity seducer among goddesses, nymphs and mortals. The glittering mythology resonates with Eros, love in all its astounding variety - devotional perfidious, sunny, dark, frenzied, serene, lusty, uncanny, earthy, twisty, and sometimes hilarious. We relish these tales in all their splendor an antic humor, and offer an inspired storyteller`s fresh version of the old, old mythical magic. Lavishly illustrated with 190 designs drawn from ancient Greek art. Visual delights abound.
