Donna Tartt’s Book of the Year

Novelist Donna Tartt recently picked The Song of Achilles for her Book of the Year in The Times!

“A captivating retelling of the Iliad and events leading up to it through the point of view of Patroclus: it’s a hard book to put down, and any classicist will be enthralled by her characterisation of the goddess Thetis, which carries the true savagery and chill of antiquity.”
