Madeline Miller, the author of the international bestseller The Song of Achilles, comes to another powerful tale Circe. Inspired by Homer’s Odyssey, Madeline Miller tells the tale of the mythological witch born in the house of Helios. Circe may be the daughter of the god of the sun, but she is rejected by her kin. She did not have the look nor the voice characteristic of her divine blood. Rejection and isolation with her fellow caused Circe to turn to mortals for acceptance. As she explored the world of mortals, she discovered a forbidden power to the gods – witchcraft.
The Guardian calls Circe, “a must-read book.” Circe ranks high in the bestseller list of The New York Times. Sunday Times Magazine praises Miller’s quality of writing and timeliness, they forecast that Circe will be “the literary sensation of the summer.”
