Circe by Madeline Miller
Shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction, Circe offers a fresh take on the haunted, isolated goddess in Homer's The Odyssey. Miller, who earned an MA in Classics from Brown University, crafts a compelling portrait of one of the most complex figures in Western literature. Circe has been called 'a ripping yarn' and 'enormously readable' due to Miller's luminous and accessible prose. This novel, a book-club favorite, is a powerful retelling of an ancient story that reclaims the woman's point of view, and focuses on themes of love, self-acceptance, and the meaning of eternity.
Copies of the book and audiobook are available at the Main Library and on Overdrive or Libby. PubReads meets at the Academy Tavern at 12800 Larchmere Blvd, Cleveland, OH 44120.
