    Five thousand years out of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur finds himself in the American South, living in a trailer park and working as a line cook at a steakhouse. No longer a devourer of human flesh, the Minotaur is a socially inept, lonely creature with very human needs. But over a two-week period, as his life dissolves into chaos, this broken and alienated immortal awakens to the possibility for happiness and to the capacity for love.

    Cathy says: "Full of surprises, delightfully unexpected"

    Story

    I honestly can't remember the last time I was this surprised by such originality in storytelling. Bravo to Steven Sherrill for a tale that's both audaciously fanciful and very human (or half-human, I suppose). Delightful, bittersweet and utterly unexpected. I'm recommending this to my friends.
    ... Another outstanding performance by Holter Graham, one of the most listenable(?) readers in the world of audiobooks.
    ... Big thanks to Neil Gaiman for championing a fine work that might not have received the attention it deserves.
    ... And now I can't help but think about other legendary creatures from ancient literature. What are they up to these days?....
