The Island of Excess Love

This companion to Love in the Time of Global Warming follows Pen as she searches for love among the ruins, this time using Virgil’s epic Aeneid as her guide. A powerful and stunning book filled with Francesca Lia Block’s beautiful language and inspiring characters.

"Pen's exhausted but determined heroism delivered through Block's dreamy sensual excesses will help readers see why these classics have such cultural staying power."~ BCCB

"A mesmerizing, magical, and mysterious tale of love and loss, stories and visions, and betrayal and redemption, all told in the author's signature lyrical voice."~ Booklist

"The language and imagery are beautiful but haunting . . . For fans of the first book, this will be a treat." ~ School Library Journal
