The sequel to "The Odyssey" - Sylvia Plath's second novel - Stuart Kelly provides a wry and erudite account of books destroyed, misplaced, never finished, or never even begun - from ancient Greek and Arabic masters through Shakespeare, Dante and Hemingway right up to the present day. Described by the "New York Times" as 'an absolute joy ...a work of great passion, insight and scholarship', the breadth of Kelly's knowledge and his enthusiasm impressed critics in the UK and the USA.
