Frayed Edge Press is pleased to announce the publication of the first English-language edition of Mexican author Esther Seligson's novella, Sed de mar.
Seligson’s feminist retelling of Homer’s Odyssey centers Penelope and her feelings of loss and desire. Yearning for the Sea picks up the story at the point of Ulysses' return to his wife Penelope, twenty years after the destruction of Troy. Seligson draws us into a confessional world of the senses, of sexual desire, of love and its absence, of loneliness, and of nostalgia for lost time and lost youth.
This first English-language edition also includes a Note on the text by translator Selma Marks, and an Introduction by Naomi Lindstrom, University of Texas at Austin.
