Published: Back Bay Books - April 14th, 2020

Circe, a character briefly mentioned in "The Odyssey," is fully realized in Madeline Miller's retelling. Weakest and most despised of the gods, Circe's exile turns out to be her greatest boon, allowing her the independence to come into her own as a powerful witch. Despite her vulnerability, Circe is fearlessly defiant in the face of injustice, making her relevant to the current moment - a powerful woman hero when such icons are so badly needed.
