“A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess’s story, Circe manages to be both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right.”
–Alexandra Alter, New York Times
With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, #1 New York Times Bestseller Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world.
