Psyche in a Dress (Hardcover)
|Author: Francesca Lia Block|
But this is what
Psyche has known Love—scented with jasmine and tasting of fresh oranges. Yet he is fleeting and fragile, lost to her too quickly. Punished by self-doubt, Psyche yearns to be transformed, like the beautiful and brutal figures in the myths her lover once spoke of. Attempting to uncover beauty in the darkness, she is challenged, tested, and changed by the gods and demons who tempt her. Her faith must be found again, for if she is to love, she must never look back.
Spun with myths, angst, and Francesca Lia Block's customary descriptive, glittering imagery, this is a series of vignettes in verse centering on female figures from Greek mythology set in modern times. Psyche as a film maker's daughter in a dusty L.A. mansion, Echo as a silent voice falling under the power of Narcissus, Eurydice finding Orpheus in a club, and others trail through an L.A. dreamscape that is Block's favorite setting for her characters.
