After writing his two autobiographical volumes, Drawing Sexy Women and The Crystal Ballroom, where Frank Thorne roamed deliciously from his accustomed milieu, he returns to amorous prose with Nymph, the untold story of a beautiful young foundling: the adolescent but not quite innocent Ghita of Alizarr. Nymph is a lusty narrative of true love lost and obsession in an ancient world. The epic tale is told by Fordel of Themm, her dubious consort and theatrical provocateur. We follow a troupe of traveling players as they perform "Ramballock," a rollicking show of live sex and burlesque. "No one will believe Thorne wrote it, but he did, and it's his magnum opus!" opined Ryder Windham, esteemed author, editor, and former Fantagraphics visionary.
