We all know Circe as the witch that Odysseus encounters in Homer's epic, but before that she was the daughter of a titan and a nymph, living an isolated eternity in her father's household as power changed hands from the ancient Titans to the brazen Olympians. Upon learning that she and her siblings were born with the powers of sorcery, the young gods see fit to banish Circe to the island of Aeaea to live out her endless days alone. However, even the vengeful gods can become bored after a few millennia, and Circe attempts to find a way to live a meaningful life within the confines of her banishment. Though our protagonist is a goddess, this story is a powerful testament to humanity. Miller has once again taken threads of myth and rewoven them into a story that is bound to become a modern classic.

“This remarkable journey into mythology brings the ancient gods directly and viscerally into the present. Circe is a perfect mashup of elegant language, glorious storytelling, and exquisitely modern sensibilities. Miller's telling left me awed and moved by Circe and her story, all while wishing I could invite her over for a glass of wine on the porch. How this amazing author so perfectly melds the human and the divine, creating a story both immediate and epic, is dazzling.”
