Circe
by
Sing, o Muse, of the triumph of Circe. Madeline Miller’s reimagining of The Odyssey is less concerned with mortal men, focusing instead on a strange woman, one possessed with power and the blood of the gods. This is the first Goodreads Choice Award for Miller, a high school teacher of Latin and Greek, who made her publishing debut in 2011 with The Song of Achilles, a spin on another of Homer’s epic poems, The Iliad.
