Medusa by Jessie Burton.
A modern, feminist reimaging of a Greek myth. Medusa’s narrative provides an in depth and descriptive account for how Medusa and her sisters came to be cursed as Gorgons by the goddess Athena. Readers discover the motivations behind why Perseus came to the island where Medusa lived and become familiar with a more human side of Medusa as they access her innermost thoughts and feelings.
Many of us will be familiar with the story of Perseus and his quest, but here the roles are reversed. A powerful and poetic read, it provides a visceral and thought-provoking reading experience for a modern era.
