'An inimitable retelling of the siege of Troy . . . Fry's narrative, artfully humorous and rich in detail, breathes life and contemporary relevance into these ancient tales' OBSERVER

Step into Stephen Fry's bewitching retelling of the legend of troy in his most epic book yet

________

'Troy. The most marvellous kingdom in all the world . . .'

Paris the Trojan has kidnapped Helen, Greek queen and most beautiful woman of the ancient world.

A thousand ships give chase and lay siege to Troy. Yet the city stands resolutely against Greek might.

Only invulnerable Achilles and wily Odysseus may lead them to victory - but the passions of mortals merely amuse the Gods and blood is easily spilled on distant shores . . .
