The ancient story of Clytemnestra, as told by the exultant, avenging murderess herself. Bloody, eloquent and strange.

A wonderful book, Colm Toibin has a way of writing that immediately draws you in. In what seems like a moment you are a hundred pages in and living his words.

A modern retelling of an ancient Greek Classic. A story filled with tragedy and revenge. What's not to like? I really enjoyed this.
