Praise for Wake, Siren: Ovid Resung (FSG, 2019):
"Nina MacLaughlin has done something audacious. She has invited the female characters in Ovid--daughter, mother, sister, wife, widow, queen, nymph, maenad, monster, even the blind seer Tiresias--to sing through her. Wake, Siren is a stunning and sustained performance, in language bold and lyrical, direct yet sensual, and loaded with natural beauty."
--Mary Norris, author of Greek to Me
"Vital, vivid, and angry."--Kirkus, starred review
