About the Author
Emily Hauser studied Classics at Cambridge, where she was taught by Mary Beard. She then went to Harvard as a Fulbright Scholar and now teaches at Yale, where she is completing her PhD in Classics. She has won several prizes for her academic work, including the University of Cambridge Chancellor's Medal and the Alice Derby Lang Essay Prize at Yale. For the Most Beautiful--the first book in the Golden Apple trilogy--is her debut novel. She lives in New Haven, Connecticut.
Reviews
Kudos to Hauser for presenting a rousing tale of adventure and adversary, featuring a feminist heroine for the ages.
Atalanta fights for the throne not because she wants power for its own sake, but to protect those weaker than herself. Despite the will of the gods, she is very clearly in charge of her own destiny. It is this mixture of feminism and self-determination which makes For the Winner a very modern and relevant novel.
