Ransom

Author(s): David Malouf

Fiction - General

In his first novel in more than a decade, award-winning author David Malouf reimagines the pivotal narrative of Homer's Iliad--one of the most famous passages in all of literature.


 


This is the story of the relationship between two grieving men at war: fierce Achilles, who has lost his beloved Patroclus in the siege of Troy; and woeful Priam, whose son Hector killed Patroclus and was in turn savaged by Achilles. A moving tale of suffering, sorrow, and redemption, Ransom is incandescent in its delicate and powerful lyricism and its unstated imperative that we imagine our lives in the glow of fellow feeling.
