Publisher's Summary

In Homer's Daughter, Robert Graves recreates the Odyssey. This bold retelling of the ancient epic imagines that its author was not the blind and bearded Homer of legend, but a young woman in Western Sicily who calls herself Nausicaä. In Robert Graves's words, Homer's Daughter is 'the story of a high-spirited and religious-minded Sicilian girl who saves her father's throne from usurpation, herself from a distasteful marriage, and her two younger brothers from butchery by boldly making things happen, instead of sitting still and hoping for the best.'

Critic Reviews

“A great imagination and above all a powerful intellect” (Daily Telegraph)
“Narrator Karen Cass brings intrigue, a budding romance, and pitched battle to life with the cool detachment of the exceptionally bright teenager that Nausicaa is--along with a teenager's occasional moodiness and petulance. The many characters are clearly delineated, and the pace never flags. Cass's reading carries us into a story as modern as it is thrilling.” (AudioFile)
