The Lost Books of The Odyssey: A Novel

The Lost Books of The Odyssey - Zachary Mason Great book. Like a master jazz musician riffing on a theme. Didn't try to replace or modernize the Odyssey, but filled in gaps and told alternative versions. I felt like I was sitting in front of fire on a little Greek greek island while a master storyteller wove his tales.
