  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
