The Eve of Saint Venus

The Eve of Saint Venus

(1964)
A novel by

 
. . . a delightful feast -- a highly civilized joke in which the goddess Venus descends into the gray world of the welfare state, intervenes erotically in the wedding arrangements of a young couple, and -- through her capacity as goddess of love -- transcends her divine appetites and consecrates in music, poetry, and miracle the union of the young, the beautiful, and the innocent.
