The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood is a unique retelling of Homer’s The Odyssey.  What happened during the 20 years that Odyssey was away?  Atwood alternates chapters from Penelope’s perspective with songs from the twelve handmaids.  A fresh look at a classic myth–this is a book that will stay with you.
