Serenissima: A Novel of Venice - Erica Jong

I can't believe I've forgotten about this book. Of course it's been ages since I read it, but today I suddenly remembered and looked it up on Goodreads. As so often happens, there were mixed reviews. What I remember of this book was great. I loved it. Most people seemed to find it really awful. I wonder why.


I loved the time travel. The erotic content was ok, but since then I've read a lot of fan fiction and slash so I think if I read it again I might find it rather tame. Or not. I really need to find the book and try again.


This isn't really a review, more a sort of brief note to myself. If I find the book I'll definitely read it again and then I'll probably write a proper review.


Oh and this is not the actual edition I read. Mine was translated into Swedish and I think it came as a freebie on the big annual book fair. When I was a kid, we got actual printed books as freebies sometimes. :)
