Ancient Evenings

Author(s): Norman Mailer

Hardback fiction

"Norman Mailer's dazzlingly rich, deeply evocative novel of ancient Egypt breathes life into the figures of a lost era- the eighteenth-dynasty Pharaoh Rameses and his wife, Queen Nefertiti; Menenhetet, their creature, lover, and victim; and the gods and mortals that surround them in intimate and telepathic communion. Mailer's reincarnated protagonist is carried through the exquisite gardens of the royal harem, along the majestic flow of the Nile, and into the terrifying clash of battle. An extraordinary work of inventiveness, Ancient Eveningslives on in the mind long after the last page has been turned. b>Praise for Ancient Eveningsi>Astounding, beautifully written . . . a leap of imagination that crosses three millennia to Pharaonic Egypt. USA TodayMailer makes a miraculous present out of age-deep memories, bringing to life the rhythms, the images, the sensuousness of a lost time. The New York Timesi>Mailer's Egypt is a haunting and magical place. . . . The reader wallows in the scope, depth, the sheer magnitude and yes the fertility of his imagination.
