Reviews

  • A gritty and exhilarating new version of the ancient stories in which the female characters take centre stage.

    Katy Guest, Guardian
  • [A] scholarly, capacious reimagining... Higgins makes you feel for these tormented, accursed mortals afresh.

    Claire Allfree, The Times
  • We are in the hands of a fine, fluent storyteller... Higgins, like the bards who first unspooled these tales, creates the illusion of spontaneity and handles suspense brilliantly... Chris Ofili's drawings complement the lyricism of the prose descriptions. Higgins depicts art mediating life - the reason, I think, that we read books... I loved this book.

    Sara Wheeler, Spectator
  • Charlotte Higgins captures the raw, magical originality of the Greek myths in this beguiling book, charmingly illustrated by Chris Ofili... She knows her classics - and her myths - inside out.

    Harry Mount, Catholic Herald
