Riassunto: Sapphos of Lesbos lived for love, as these unashamed memoirs show. It has always been widely believed that Lesbos, basking in the blue Aegean Sea, was an island where lesbianism held full sway - but this is only partly true. Married to a wealthy merchant, the legendary voluptuary found his frequent absences provided just the freedom she desired to satisfy her amorous needs beyond the limited circle of her beautiful handmaids. For though sensuous Sappho certainly knew well how to please a woman, she also knew how to please her men. Her numerous lovers, Phaon and Alexander, Kressim and Alcaeus among many others, were beguiled by her beauty and seduced by her sensual charm.
L'autore: Alexander Trocchi was born on the 30th July 1925 in Glasgow to a Scottish mother and Italian father. On graduating from the University of Glasgow in the early 1950s, he obtained a travelling grant that allowed him to relocate to continental Europe. He first lived in Paris and edited the literary magazine Merlin, which published Henry Miller, Samuel Beckett, Christopher Logue, and Pablo Neruda. It was in Paris that he acquired a lifelong heroin addiction, which continued after moving to America and settling in New York. In the 1960s Trocchi lived in Kensington, London where he later died of pneumonia in 1984.
