About this book
Mason's playful retelling of "The Odyssey", in which he portrays 44 different and contradictory fragments of familiar stories, allowing the reader to see Homer's masterpiece afresh. 'Spellbinding.' Simon Armitage
After ten years' journeying Odysseus returns, again and again, to Ithaca. Each time he finds something different: his patient wife Penelope has betrayed him and married; his arrival accelerates time and he watches his family age and die in front of him; and, he walks into an empty house in ruins.
