Product description

Review

"An absorbing, sweeping novel that grabs readers from the touching opening page onwards - there's no half heartedness" (The Bookseller)

"Of the many versions of Homer's epic, this is the first - with apologies to James Joyce - to do justice to the women in the story. Touching and engaging" (Guardian)

"Adele Geras's Ithaka is authentic. It's as worked and reworked as Penelope's weaving as she waits for Odysseus post Troy, but it's seamless" (TES)

"Geras brings the story to life with characters whose behaviour and reactions seem very contemporary . . . The pace is gentle, and some difficult subjects are handled with sensitivity" (Writeaway!)

Book Description

A fascinating retelling of the classic story of Odysseus from the unusual perspective of his wife, Penelope.
