Sappho's Leap is a journey back 2600 years to inhabit the mind of the greatest love poet the world has ever known. At the age of 14, Sappho is seduced by the beautiful poet Alcaeus, plots with him to overthrow the dictator of the island, but is caught and married off to a repellent older man in the hope that matrimony will keep her out of trouble. Instead, it starts her off on a series of amorous adventures taking her from Delphi to Egypt, and even to the Land of the Amazons and the shadowy realm of Hades.   Erica Jong is the author  of the famous feminist book  Fear of Flying.
