From bestselling author Francesca Lia Block, an imaginative new guide to dating based on the timeless wisdom of myth, folklore, and fairy tales. Navigating the world of dating can be like wandering an enchanted forest, full of creatures with peculiar habits and baffling behavior. In Wood Nymph Seeks Centaur, Francesca Lia Block provides a guide to this often-treacherous terrain, classifying all those mystifying men and women into various types of mythical forest fauna-Fauns and Werewolves, Mermaids and Banshees. After answering questions to determine your own type, you can learn to identify others-with the help of illustrations from artist Fumi Nakamura. By reading up on the various types' favorite activities, likely professions, sexual preferences, and parenting styles, you'll gain insight into compatible creatures. If you're a Wood Nymph (like Block), you could get your heart broken by a fickle Satyr, but if you can track down the strong, soulful Centaurs of the forest, you just might be on the path to true love. Clever and insightful, Wood Nymph Seeks Centaur is an invaluable guide for any dating creature.
The daughter of a poet mother and a painter father, Francesca Lia Block wrote her first book, WEETZIE BAT, while still a student at the University of California-Berkley. Although she also writes nonfiction and adult erotica, Block is best known for her young adult novels--which she describes as "contemporary fairy tales with an edge." Indeed, although written in a dreamy style, Block's characters in such books as THE HANGED MAN, WITCH BABY, VIOLET & CLAIRE, and MISSING ANGEL JUAN deal with such thorny issues as AIDS, incest, and drug abuse.
