Reprint. Originally published: London: Gollancz, 1977.

'I know nothing. I am a tabula erasa, a blank sheet of paper, an unhatched egg.

I have not yet become a woman, although I possess a woman's shape. Not a woman, no: both more and less than a real woman.

Now I am a being as mythic and monstrous as Mother herself...New York has become the City of Dreadful Night where dissolute Leilah performs a dance of chaos for Evelyn.

But this young Englishman's fate lies in the arid desert, where a many-breasted fertility goddess will wield her scalpel to transform him into the new Eve.

New York has become the City of Dreadful Night where dissolute Leilah performs a dance of chaos for Evelyn.

But this young Englishman's fate lies in the arid desert, where a many-breasted fertility goddess will wield her scalpel to transform him into the new Eve.

THE PASSION OF NEW EVE is an extraordinary journey into the apocalyptic vision of the author Lorna Sage called 'The boldest of English writers'.
