Fiction. Women's Studies. Italian American Studies. "THE END OF APHRODITE explores the relationship between artist and muse, between the subjects of myths and the keepers of them. This is a beautifully rendered work narrated by a collection of characters whose faith is inspired by the beauty of art, the power of the ocean, the remnants of ancient religions, and the many mutations of love. When the unimaginable occurs and those beliefs are tested, Laurette Folk challenges us all to wonder who will be charged with remembering us? What sense of adoration, or guilt, or duty, preserves in survivors the stories that need to be saved?"--Carla Panciera.
