Susan Griffin's fascinating account of the courtesans, women with
great power in a time when most women had none.

Not just the courtesans and their lives, but the lives of their
patrons, their times and even their methods.

Wonderfull stories of Paris during the Belle Epoque, Venice during
the Cinquecento, philosophers, poets, painters, and politicians.

And I'm barely halfway through.
