Overview

From bestselling author Francesca Lia Block, an imaginative new guide to dating based on the timeless wisdom of myth, folklore, and fairy tales.

Navigating the world of dating can be like wandering an enchanted forest, full of creatures with peculiar habits and baffling behavior. In Wood Nymph Seeks Centaur, Francesca Lia Block provides a guide to this often-treacherous terrain, classifying all those mystifying men and women into various types of mythical forest fauna—Fauns and Werewolves, Mermaids and Banshees.

After answering questions to determine your own type, you can learn to identify others—with the help of illustrations from artist Fumi Nakamura. By reading up on the various types' favorite activities, likely professions, sexual preferences, and parenting styles, you'll gain insight into compatible creatures. If you're a Wood Nymph (like Block), you could get your heart broken by a fickle Satyr, but if you can track down the strong, soulful Centaurs of the forest, you just might be on the path to true love. Clever and insightful, Wood Nymph Seeks Centaur is an invaluable guide for any dating creature.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Block's fiction is famous for its fascination with magic, mythology, and love in all its myriad aspects. So it comes as no surprise that this self-styled 'love obsessive'... should have created the first 'mythological dating guide.' Her intriguing premise is that peoples' romantic personalities can be classified and described as mythological creatures... Charming and inventive...” —Booklist

In the worst condition of all the barracks. After the Argo II bombed the Forum, the 5th Cohort fell back into the lowest spot.
