The Penelopiad, Margaret Atwood

Penelope's slyly brilliant side of the story, from the Booker Prize-winning author of The Handmaid's Tale.

‘As potent as a curse’ The Times

A Short History of Myth, Karen Armstrong

Surprising, powerful and profound, A Short History of Myth examines the world's most ancient art form - the making and telling of stories - and why we still need it.

‘Witty, informative and contemplative’ New York Times

The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, Philip Pullman

The number one Sunday Times bestseller, which sold over 180,000 copies. In Pullman's hands, this sacred tale is reborn as one of the most enchanting, thrilling and visionary stories of recent years.

‘A fierce and beautiful book which . . . will move even those who disagree with it’ Observer

Weight, Jeanette Winterson

Jeanette Winterson’s retelling of the myth of Atlas and Heracles asks difficult and eternal questions about the nature of choice and coercion. Visionary and inventive, Weight turns the familiar on its head to show us ourselves in a new light.

‘Profound and provocative’ Daily Mail

Girl Meets Boy, Ali Smith

A bold and joyous retelling of Ovid’s Metamorphoses by the award-winning, bestselling author of How to be Both.

‘Exuberant . . . Slender, sweet natured and lyrical’ Guardian

Lion’s Honey, David Grossman

A daring retelling of the story of Samson, from the author of the Man Booker International Prize-winning A Horse Walks Into a Bar.

‘A master of the emotionally accurate and significant. His characters don't so much lie on the page as rise before the reader's eyes’ Yann Martel
