Review quote

"Lombardo has brought his laconic wit and love of the ribald... to his version of the Odyssey. His carefully honed syntax gives the narrative energy and a whirlwind pace. The lines, rhythmic and clipped, have the tautness and force of Odysseus' bow. Chris Hedges New York Times Book Review"show more
