This is a retelling of all the Greek Myths that involve Circe, from her perspective. There are some beautiful and poignant passages, some entertaining interpretations or inclusions of other myths (like Daedalus) but also a lot of bland sections. I'm not particularly convinced by the author's interpretation of Circe as a naive, ignorant and stigmatized goddess. The author also seems to cast almost every beautiful woman as a vapid or cruel slut. However, I did enjoy this book despite my few gripes.
