Love Stories from the Mahabharata

Pradip Bhattacharya (Translator) Subodh Ghose (Author)
Synopsis Erotic in style and content, this collection unearths the forgotten and lesser known tales of love from the great epic.  The narrative is sensuous and often sensual in detail, pulsating with the blood and throb of bodies that breath in unison, in a world particularized by its own mores.  Parikshit and sushobhana, Agni and Svaha, Agastya and Lopamudra, and many more lovelorn couples take the reader on a journey through the crosscurrents of physical desire and psychic union.
