About Book

A stranger washed up on the shores of a great city claims to be Odysseus, sacker of Troy. Bedraggled and desperate, he pleads for help to get back to his native land of Ithaca and his waiting wife Penelope. To do so he must tell his remarkable tale of ten years' wandering amongst giants, nymphs, sirens and lotus eaters. The story of a man who won a war abroad and lost everything in search for home.
