The author of the international bestseller The Song of Achilles returns with her latest novel, the story of the mythological sorceress Circe, inspired by The Odyssey. She speaks about it with classicist and Odyssey translator Emily Wilson.
Madeline Miller's first novel, The Song of Achilles, transformed The Iliad from a vast impersonal epic into an intimate and poignant love story, combining scholarship with creativity to such heights that Miller won comparisons to Mary Renault and Margaret Atwood—as well as the 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction. Now Miller turns her mind to Homer's other great work, and one of mythology's most riveting figures, in Circe.
