Publisher's Description

A bold re-imagining of our civilization’s greatest tale of war, from the acclaimed and bestselling author of Silk.

In An Iliad, Alessandro Baricco re-creates the siege of Troy through the voices of twenty-one Homeric characters, in the narrative idiom of our modern imagination. From the return of Chryseis to the burial of Hector, we see through human eyes and feel with human hearts the unforgettable events first recounted almost three thousand years ago. Imbuing the stuff of legend with a startling new relevancy and humanity, Baricco gives us The Iliad as we have never known it. His transformative achievement is certain to delight and fascinate all readers of Homer’s indispensable classic.

Author Bio

Alessandro Baricco was born in Turin in 1958 and still makes his home there. The author of four previous novels, he has won the Prix Médicis Étranger in France and the Selezione Campiello, Viareggio, and Palazzo al Bosco prizes in Italy.

Editorial Reviews

“For all those curious about The Iliad but intimidated by its heft, Baricco’s book offers a swift, stylish, summer-reading version of the great epic.” —San Francisco Chronicle“A taut and mesmerizing tale.” —The Seattle Times“Baricco divides the tale into a series of monologues by characters both major and minor. The result is compelling, occasionally thrilling.” —Entertainment Weekly
