Chin Yee Lai: The Lost Books of the Odyssey

Printed on uncoated stock with a pearlescent coating on the "o"s (which I've attempted to reproduce rather roughly). From FSG. "The Lost Books of the Odyssey, reimagines Homer’s classic story of the hero Odysseus and his long journey home after the fall of Troy. With brilliant prose, terrific imagination, and dazzling literary skill, Mason creates alternative episodes, fragments, and revisions of Homer’s original that taken together open up this classic Greek myth to endless reverberating interpretations."
