The Song of Achilles Novel by Madeline Miller

A  New York Times  Bestseller

“At once a scholar’s homage to   The Iliad  and startlingly original work of art….A book I could not put down.” —Ann Patchett, author of   The Dutch House

A thrilling, profoundly moving, and utterly unique retelling of the legend of Achilles and the Trojan War from the bestselling author of  Circe

A tale of gods, kings, immortal fame, and the human heart,   The Song of Achilles  is a dazzling literary feat that brilliantly reimagines Homer’s enduring masterwork,   The Iliad. An action-packed adventure, an epic love story, a marvellously conceived and executed page-turner, Miller’s monumental debut novel has already earned resounding acclaim from some of contemporary fiction’s brightest lights—and fans of Mary Renault, Bernard Cornwell, Steven Press field, and Colleen McCullough’s Masters of Rome series will delight in this unforgettable journey back to ancient Greece in the Age of Heroes.

“Mary Renault lives again!”  —Emma Donoghue, author of  Room
