Prepare to be enchanted and astonished by this sweeping history of female representation and demonic symbolism in Sarah Clegg‘s non-fiction extravaganza, Woman’s Lore, publishing with Head of Zeus.

On a journey that spans ancient Mesopotamia to the present day, Woman’s Lore introduces us to a multitude of serpentine succubi, a child-eating wolf-monster of ancient Greece, the Queen of Sheba and a host of vampires, as she demonstrates how these demons were appropriated by male-centered societies, before eventually being recast as symbols of women’s liberation.

Full of exquisite insights into attitudes towards womanhood, sexuality and women’s rights, we are thrilled that Woman’s Lore is now available for readers to devour. Order yours here.
