Description

Madeline Miller is the best-selling author of Circe and Song of Achilles. Her books reimagine the ancient myths of The Iliad and The Odyssey, bringing previously neglected characters to the fore. She talks to Krishnan about what drove her to write them, how she's tried to make the Classics a feminist space, and her despair at modern America.
