Product description

Review

'That this tender novel lingers so long and hauntingly in the mind is a testament both to Malouf’s poetry and to his reverence for the endless power of myth.' Author: The New York Times

'Though Malouf's sparingly deployed details, vigorous language and sly wit humanises these tragic heroes, the story is unmistakably epic and certainly the stuff of legend.' Author: Publishers Weekly

'A splendid, creative précis of ancient events that still reverberate.' Author: Kirkus Reviews

Book Description

Malouf's fable engraves the epic themes of the Trojan war onto a perfect miniature.
