Leaf through our collection:
"Gripping. . . . Lombardo's achievement is all the more striking when you consider the difficulties of his task. . . . He] manages to be respectful of Homer's dire spirit while providing on nearly every page some wonderfully fresh refashioning of his Greek. The result is a vivid and disarmingly hardbitten reworking of a great classic."
--Daniel Mendelsohn, The New York Times Book Review
