Culture, History

The most enduring stories of all time survive not only because they speak deeply to the human condition, but because they are told and retold by every generation, made fresh by new voices to answer the demands and spirit of the age. The award-winning author of Red Thread and Under Another Sky Charlotte Higgins is here to thrill us with her new interpretation of the Greek myths: for the first time bringing female characters – Athena, Helen, Penelope and others – to centre stage.
