Ancient Evenings

Hermetic Library Fellow T Polyphilus reviews Ancient Evenings by Norman Mailer.

Mailer Ancient Evenings

This novel is a heady re-imagining of the magical perspective of the Pharaohs, full of intense, smaller narratives ranging from the quotidian to the mythic. I recently noticed that Wilbur Smith had written more volumes in his ancient Egyptian series, but I’d rather spend the time re-reading Mailer’s monumental book.
