The comic adventures of Dunyazade, Perseus, and Bellerophon reveal the author's thought on the nature of a hero and relationships between men and women

From the Inside Flap:

"Rich, hilarious . . . There's every chance in the world that John Barth is a genius." Playboy
By the winner of the National Book Award and bestselling author of "The Tidewater Tales," three of the great myths of all time revisited by a modern master.
Dunyazade, Scheherazade's kid sister, holds the destiny of herself and the prince who holds her captive.
Perseus, the demigod who slew the Gorgon Medusa, finds himself at forty battling for simple self-respect like any common mortal.
Bellerophon, once a hero for taming the winged horse Pegasus, must wrestle with a contentment that only leaves him wretched.
