Reading List: The Penelopiad

The Penelopiad
by Margaret Atwood

Having read The Handmaid's Tale in college, I was always interesting in reading more Margaret Atwood, and so it was with pleasure that I discovered that she chose to write something based on one of my favorite stories, The Odyssey, basically, from the perspective of Penelope.  Having read a tiny bit of it, I am somewhat concerned that Atwood overdosed her narrative in skewed feminist perspective, but I'm in the midst of a Homeric marathon.  I cannot stop now.

  1. I'm going to get to hear her read at a Pen Word Voices event. Looking forward to it.
