Heroes - Stephen Fry House of Names - Colm Tóibín The Silence of the Girls - Pat Barker Circe - Madeline Miller Home is the Hunter: A Comedy in Two Acts - Helen MacInnes Der Gesang der Wellen - Manuel Vicent

I had not planned this, but sometimes books just work out this way.

As I’m in the middle of the third book this month that is a re-telling of Greek myths and history, I might as well make a month of it.

My library reservation of Circe became available and I recently picked up Home is the Hunter, which should be interesting as MacInnes is better-known for the thrillers, and Der Gesang der Wellen (tr. The Song of the Sea/Waves), which was a recommendation by a fellow BookLiker, Locus Amoenus. I had no idea what Der Gesang der Wellen is about but the back cover tells me it features Odysseus.

So, there we have it, I’m going to spend much of August in Ancient Greece.
