ACHUKA Book of the Day 10 Nov 2021
“Gill’s sublime full-page illustrations, [r]ich in texture and color… give the impression of a rediscovered ancient manuscript or mural. A smart reimagining of an ancient tale that questions old tropes.” KIRKUS
A dazzling, feminist retelling of Greek myth from Jessie Burton, the internationally bestselling author of The Miniaturist, illustrated by Olivia Lomenech Gill.
Exiled to a far-flung island by the whims of the gods, Medusa has little company except the snakes that adorn her head instead of hair. But when a charmed, beautiful boy called Perseus arrives on the island, her lonely existence is disrupted with the force of a supernova, unleashing desire, love and betrayal…
Filled with glorious full-colour illustrations by award-winning Olivia Lomenech Gill.
