Product description


The book is packed with such goodies ... As he picks his way among the ruins, brooding on the past - his own, and that of Greece - the author remains essentially English ... Equally, at times, Harry Mount has an air of being the living embodiment of the study of classics itself: noble, solitary, uneasily beleaguered, and sporting a slightly silly hat (Spectator)

Mount is honey-tongued, and this journey is ... fantastically entertaining (The Times)

An exploration of the diverse ways in which ancient Greek culture still runs in our veins, influences our thinking and governs our world view. (Michael C. Scott Times Literary Supplement)

[An] enjoyable and informative book ... fact and fiction can, as in the Bible, merge to create a heady mixture, which inspires and instructs. Cruise this book, and find the flavour of it (The Oldie)

One of the most compelling writers of his generation. (A.N.Wilson Evening Standard - Books of the Year 2015)

A minor masterpiece of self-deprecation (Nicholas Lezard Guardian)

Book Description

Harry Mount's Odyssey: Ancient Greece in the Footsteps of Odysseus is a journey round Greece inspired by the heroes, locations and tales of the Odyssey and tracing ancient Greek civilization at its height
