A brilliant and beguiling reimagining of one of our greatest
myths by a gifted young writer.
Zachary Mason’s brilliant and beguiling debut novel, The Lost Books of the Odyssey,
reimagines Homer’s classic story of the hero Odysseus and his long journey home
after the fall of Troy. With brilliant prose, terrific imagination, and
dazzling literary skill, Mason creates alternative episodes, fragments, and
revisions of Homer’s original that taken together open up this classic Greek
myth to endless reverberating interpretations. The Lost Books of the Odyssey is punctuated with great wit, beauty,
and playfulness; it is a daring literary page-turner that marks the emergence
of an extraordinary new talent.
