Knidos was renowned for its nude statue of the goddess Aphrodite. This book is about searching for Aphrodite, a memoir exploring the author’s involvement with the excavation of the huge city, while his own life was transformed from adolescent gaucheness into the beginnings of maturity.
Laced with poetic evocations of the ancient and modern world, it contains hilarious stories of the people he met along the way.
