"Not every artist is for sale. Case in point: Eurydice" -NBC
A cutesy autobiographical note on the flyleaf of this novel tells us that Eurudice was born on Lesbos, that 'by the age of eight she had rewritten the books in her father's library, including Homer, Shakespeare and Beckett', and that at 14 she had run off to Hollywood.
This collection of interviews with inhabitants of the sexual fringe reads like an odd combination of a reporter's raw files and an undergraduate's paper.
Eurydice writes about sex. Wicked, deviant, dirty, dirty sex. But that doesn't make her some mindless bimbo, OK?
Some cover headlines you can't avoid. So when July SPIN heralds an exclusive, "Sin City: Sex in the Vatican," one may be moved to briefly put aside the July Atlantic Monthly, which predicts an economic depression.

A fascinating tour of the sexual fringes of our society, an inside look at worlds into which most of us will never seek or gain entrance.
Walking in Miami's winter heat towards a slither of land between the beach and wealthy Indian Creek billionaire bunker "La Gorce" is somewhat surreal. In the part of town known as mid-beach where you never know who lives in which condo canyon.
I was born on the island of Lesbos in Greece. I taught myself to read at age two. When I went to school in Athens at five, I realized that being termed a Lesbian was derogatory and I would be shunned if I didn’t hide my birthplace.
Eurydice, the mononymical author of Satyricon USA, doesn't see things so simply. For her, repression—the result of everything from lingering Calvinism to political correctness—helps produce sexual subcultures as far afield as bloodsport lesbians, lecherous priests, and subjects of alien sexual experiments.
Eurydice Kamvyselli struck me as a woman who resists nonsense, but more so, foolishness from any opponent who questions her prerogative. But her confrontation is directed towards men (since it has been men creating most sex scandals), and rescuing our vaginas and womanhood, as an agency.
I must say I felt something similar while reading the likewise pseudonymous Eurydice’s Satyricon USA , a chatty, bizarrely erudite and frequently astute “road tour” of the far frontier of state-of-the-art American sexuality.
