Sometimes you just get lucky and find exactly what you want in erotica and in this antholgy--two erotica stories--I did that.

The White Island: The Extraordinary History of the Mediterranean's Capital of Hedonism
Ibiza is a magnet for hedonists, but la Isla Blanca is also a sophisticated, cosmopolitan island of enormous natural beauty. The island's history reads like a history of pleasure itself. The Carthaginians established a cult there to Tanit, their goddess of sex, and Roman centurions in need of down time between campaigns would go to Ibiza to get their kicks. Over the centuries, virtually every culture around the Mediterranean has used the island ...

University Of Chicago Press
A stunning book
This book is a stunner in every way. The story of Matisse's siege on the US artworld is fascinating, full of great vignettes about MOMA, the Cohn sisters, Alfred Barr, Barnes, the American press. Equally impressive is the smart, whimsical design and the gorgeous color plates.

The Detective Novel of Manners: Hedonism, Morality, and the Life of Reason
Hanna Kurz Charney
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Pr
Hedonism: A Novel
Dancing and disturbing the peace.
This is new beat fiction full of old school noir, a `who-done-it?' that dances across the page like techno rotating at 200 BPM. And since this is a mystery set in the club kids den's of antiquity I don't want to be a spoiler- except to say- expect lurid sex, and scornful drugs and the farther reaches of subculture New York City to be on display.
