Publisher's Synopsis

'A great storyteller' Madeline Miller, author of Circe

In this powerful new collection, Charlotte Higgins foregrounds Greek mythology's most enduring heroines.


Here are the myths of Heracles and Theseus, the Trojan war, Thebes and Argos and Athens. They are stories of love and desire, adventure and magic, destructive gods, helpless humans, fantastical creatures and resourceful witches.

In this telling the female characters take centre stage as Athena, Helen, Circe, Penelope and others weave these stories into elaborate imagined tapestries. In Charlotte Higgins's thrilling new interpretation of these ancient stories, their tales combine to form a dazzling, sweeping epic of storytelling.

With a series of original drawings by Chris Ofili.
