New Yorker article- Epic Endeavours by Daniel Mendelsohn

Just a quick note to share an excellent article by the always interesting Daniel Mendelsohn on three recent re-imaginings of Greek myths. One of the novels featured is Ransom by my great favourite David Malouf, which Mendelsohn calls subtle, extremely moving, rich and novel, all of which I’d wholeheartedly agree with.

  1. Hi Pete, I’d say Remembering Babylon, The Great World or this one, I also think his short stories collected in the likes of Dream Stuff and Every Move You Make are very good.

  2. Hi Eva, thanks for stopping by and good to see you blogging again. Ransom is certainly a mythic retelling to look out for.
