This final volume in The Eros Trilogy is all one might expect from the author who coined the term “Jungian romance.” Sharp and his rogueish side-kick Razr jostle for position, adroitly balancing Logos and Eros, puer and senex. Overall, it is both heady and hearty.
A bonus here is the inclusion of a long-lost scholarly essay by the late A. R. Pope of Zurich, “The Eros Aspect of the Eye,”
Here are some advance reviews:
Hijacked by Eros is saucy and salty, peppered with nonsense and experiential insights.
—B. C. Review of Books, Vancouver.
Sharp explores the genre he created (Jungian romance) with courage and panache. Serious fun.
—Melbourne Daily Mail.
Sharp is the Harold Pinter of the Jungian world.
Simultaneously sparse and profound, his books offer a refreshing perspective on Jung’s fundamental ideas.
Hijacked by Eros packs a mighty wallop:
Unadulterated Jung, song and dance, and sexy ladies.
—Indianapolis Broad Rippler.
Hijacked by Eros is a remarkable blend of thinking and feeling, Logos and Eros. It is a refreshing and informative read, light-hearted and bold in elucidating the basic tenets of Jungian psychology.
—San Francisco Mirror.
