"Clever and entertaining."--Times, UK
"Here, in this treat of a book, the women take centre stage--and how brilliantly . . . Natalie Haynes brings them to witty, lyrical, scintillating life . . . A book to both savour and devour."--Suzannah Lipscomb, author of 1536
"A joy to read: fast paced, cracking with emotion and tension."--Michael Scott, Ancient Worlds
"Breathtaking . . . Her writing isn't merely clever, or elegant, or (at times) extremely funny--though it is all of those things. It's also viscerally vivid."--Catherine Nixey, author of The Darkening Age
"Haynes is master of her trade . . . She succeeds in breathing warm life into some of our oldest stories."--Telegraph, UK
With her trademark passion, wit, and fierce feminism, Haynes gives much-needed voice to the silenced women of the Trojan War. Her thoughtful portraits will linger with you long after the book is finished.--Madeline Miller, author of Circe
"A witty, unapologetically feminist story of women's suffering, courage, and endurance... Haynes' freshly modern version of an ancient tale is perfect for our times."--Booklist
"This lively reinvention [of the Trojan War] is worth the journey."--Library Journal
"An enthralling reimagining of the lives of women from both Troy and Greek culture. . . . Haynes shines by twisting common perceptions of the Trojan War and its aftermath in order to capture the women's experiences."--Publishers Weekly
"Absorbing and fiercely feminist . . . this subversive re-seeing of the classics is a many-layered delight."--Guardian
