Shylock's Daughter: A Novel of Love in Venice

Shylock's Daughter: A Novel of Love in Venice - Erica Jong My favourite Erica Jong's novel. I haven't read this in many years but the memories are good ones. I loved the timelessness of the storytelling, the out of time, out of body experience, Shakespeare in Venice and how the heroine slips into Jessica's persona trying to live up to what she knows of the play's history. I'm definitely gonna reread it this year.
