A personal ode to the pleasures of food and sex, Afrodita celebrates the sensual life with joy and imagination. Allende’s exuberance, storytelling ability, and naughty sense of fun make this memoir an irresistible treat for the senses. She spices her narrative with equal portions of humor and insight, blending personal reminiscence with folklore from around the world, historical legends, and memorable moments from literature—erotic and otherwise.

[English-language edition: Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses (978-0060930172). Harper Perennial; 1st HarperPerennial Ed edition (April 7, 1999)]

Assembling a feast of fascinating facts about the aphrodisiac powers of food and drink, Allende serves them up with both convincing admiration and due irreverence. She offers suggestions, both ancient and modern, for luring a lover, kindling sexual ardor, prolonging the act of love, and reviving flagging virility. Dipping into the cauldron of history, she reports on the lascivious appetites of everyone from the emperor Nero to Catherine the Great to France’s notorious Madame du Barry. A charmingly idiosyncratic look at the intertwined sensual arts of food and love.

Born in Peru and raised in Chile, Isabel Allende is the author of a number of bestselling and critically acclaimed books, including The House of the Spirits, Eva Luna, Stories of Eva Luna, Of Love and Shadows, and Paula. Her latest novel is The Japanese Lover. Her books have been translated into more than 35 languages and have sold more than 65 million copies worldwide.

Elogios para Isabel Allende y Afrodita

“Como un amante lento y seductor, Allende se burla, tienta y excita con historias y leyendas fascinantes sobre la gula y la gula sexual”. —The Washington Post

"Afortunadamente en esta sofisticada defensa del placer, la novelista Allende le da otra vez alegría al comer y al amar con toda la gracia que caracteriza a lo mejor de su ficción. A pesar de ser una apasionada sobre el tema, ella sigue siendo caprichosamente coherente con esta mezcla de anécdotas, recetas y consejos diseñados para mejorar cualquier encuentro romántico. Como siempre, su arma secreta es la honestidad”. —Publishers Weekly

"Afrodita explora el vínculo duradero y apasionado entre lo culinario y lo carnal y prepara un guiso embriagador de amour y cuisine”. —People

"En Afrodita, la novelista latino americana Isabel Allende trata a las recetas como hechizos de magia eróticos”. —Los Angeles Times
