"A marvel - beautifully written, surprisingly moving... rather brilliant" ( Daily Mail)
"A wonderful retelling of the encounter between Achilles and the Trojan King Priam in prose that's so good you want to eat it" (Mariella Frostrup Observer)
"A rich, moving and sometimes disturbing novel" ( Scotsman)
"David Malouf writes with the voice of a poet; his graceful fiction deals in truth and is always beautiful... This is a book that will engage and inspire... In writing this novel Malouf is honouring a great work and also making his own" ( Irish Times)
"In bringing something radically new, yet sensitively overlaid, to an already powerful epic, Malouf proves that an "untold tale" can be every bit as rewarding as its ancient original" (Philip Parker Financial Times)
In this exquisite gem of a novel, David Malouf shines new light on Homer's Iliad, adding twists and reflections, as well as flashes of earthy humour, to surprise and enchant. Lyrical, immediate and heartbreaking, Malouf's fable engraves the epic themes of the Trojan war onto a perfect miniature - themes of war and heroics, hubris and humanity, chance and fate, the bonds between soldiers, fathers and sons, all brilliantly recast for our times.
