Quotes

  • “Perfect for the twenty-first century. Ebullient, funny, Fry retells the Greek myths with elegance.”

    - The Times (London)
  • “Let waggish comic actor Fry be your ferryman as he retells, with the aid of eminent classical artwork, the ancient and strangely au courant Greek legends. Among them: Zeus and Hera’s coupling of which Cry writes, ‘Crackling with tension, impatience, and disgust, theirs was nonetheless a great marriage.’"

    - O, The Oprah Magazine
  • “Fry’s lively writing certainly conveys his lifelong passion for Greek myths…It’s a rollicking good read.”

    - The Independent (London)
  • “A cracking good story.”

    - Times Literary Supplement (London)
