Circe by Madeline Miller

Staff Pick

Fans of Madeline Miller’s debut novel, Song of Achilles, will be rushing to jump back into her deftly reimagined Hellenic world with Circe (Little, Brown, $27). In this newest release, Miller brings another secondary Homeric character to the forefront with the story of Circe, the neglected and later exiled daughter of the Titan Helios. Readers follow Circe from her lonely childhood through endless centuries of immortal life, as she discovers her own power through witchcraft and meets a cast of familiar mythological characters along the way. Miller crafts a fiercely independent anti-heroine with lyrical and mesmerizing prose that pulls the reader in as swiftly as the whirlpools of Charybdis—if only to devastate as often as the jaws of Scylla. This riveting novel is a heartfelt ode to a supremely human goddess, and to every woman who has had to create her own power in a callous world.
