The "Surprisingly Modern" Kama Sutra

Follow me on:

Penguin Classics' Kama SutraWith all that's going on in the world of erotic publishing, it seemed the right week to flash the cover of Penguin Classics' recently-released The Kama Sutra, newly translated by A. N. D. Haksar.

The Kama Sutra was written over 2,000 years ago, and New York Times reviewer Dwight Garner notes "how little of this book is a sex tutorial and how much of it is an intricate and surprisingly modern guide to the art of living." Not to mention an enduring bit of book history.
