The Lost Books of the Odyssey

[Longhorn Review] The Lost Books of the Odyssey

Material Type: All, books — Tags: classical fiction — Posted on March 29, 2010, 10:45 am

By: Mason, Zachary

The Odyssey refracted through the broken mirror of modern consciousness. Zachary
Mason has drunk from the well of Calvino and Borges and gives us a poignant and
compelling rendition of the wily Odysseus' wanderings and companions. The text is
like the shell of a hermit crab - an adopted mobile shelter, a bricolage that winds
back on itself, with the sudden stirring of life from within.
