About this title


In Sleeping with the Gods, Greek and Roman gods emerge from the shadows of history and stir up a potent brew of mischief. What chance do humans, hungry with desire, steeped in folly and delusion, have when dealing with savvy, treacherous immortals?

These gods will not seem like the remote figures you learned about in school. Dionysus, principal clarinetist in an orchestra, seduces its conductor, Hestia is a seemingly docile Japanese android, and Mars sets ups his own playground of religious wars. These stories explore the nexus where human illusion and omnipotent mastery collide. Each divine encounter leads to a labyrinth of overwhelming confusion. Hilarity, pathos, erotic entanglements, and probing psychological intricacies follow as each mere mortal is left ensnared and exposed.  

From the Back Cover:

In her short story collection, Sleeping with the Gods, Jean Wong lets us know in no uncertain terms that the gods of Greece and Rome are far from ancient history. Treacherous and irresistible, they continue to stir up trouble for unwary humans whose desires cloud their discretion. Readers will be delighted, titillated and disturbed by these tales of seduction and destruction.              --Susan Bono, Editor of Tiny Lights: a Journal of Personal Narrative
