The Life Fantastic

Myth, History, Pop and Folklore in the Making of Western Culture

Noa Menhaim

This collection of highly entertaining, wide-ranging essays will make you see western culture as never before. From monsters and witches to ancient libraries and lost islands, The Life Fantastic traces the origins of ideas and the surpising ways in which they’ve combined through history to build the world we have today.

From the real-life stories that inspired famous children’s tales to the history of the clitoris, Menhaim propels the reader back and forth through time, from art and literature to politics and religion, from high to popular culture and back again. Marginal notes create a web of references between the chapters, allowing you to follow links that interest you – travel from the Amazons to the Vikings to mermaids – and explore our mind-blowing network of culture.

Noa Menhaim is an essayist, editor, lecturer, literary critic and head of the Hebrew literature department at Israel’s largest publishing house. She has made many appearances on radio and television, and is also widely known for screenwriting, script editing and TV series development.
