9780062060624 â€œAt once a scholarâ€™s homage to The Iliad and startlingly original work of art by an incredibly talented new novelist....A book I could not put down.â€ â€”Ann Patchett â€œMary Renault lives again!â€ declares Emma Donoghue, author of Room, referring to The Song of Achilles, Madeline Millerâ€™s thrilling, profoundly moving, and utterly unique retelling of the legend of Achilles and the Trojan War. A tale of gods, kings, immortal fame, and the human heart, The Song of Achilles is a dazzling literary feat that brilliantly reimagines Homerâ€™s enduring masterwork, The Iliad. An action-packed adventure, an epic love story, a marvelously conceived and executed page-turner, Millerâ€™s monumental debut novel has already earned resounding acclaim from some of contemporary fictionâ€™s brightest lightsâ€”and fans of Mary Renault, Bernard Cornwell, Steven Pressfield, and Colleen McCulloughâ€™s Masters of Rome series will delight in this unforgettable journey back to ancient Greece in the Age of Heroes.
