About This Item

Boston: Little, Brown, 1983. A tight, clean presumedly unread copy of this massive novel by the late Mr. Mailer. 709pp.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.

Synopsis

Ancient Evenings is a novel by Norman Mailer. It deals with the lives of two protagonists, one young, one old, in a very alien ancient Egypt marked by journeys by the dead, reincarnation, and violent and hyper-sexual gods and mortals in a complex combination of historical fiction, allegory, poetic flight, confession and spiritual meditation.  Crossing three millennia to Pharaonic Egypt, this tale returns to that land's essences - the war, magic, gods, death and reincarnations, the lusts, ambitions, jealousies, and betrayals, sadistically admiring all sorts of violence and atrocity, both in sarcasm and reality.
