AUDIOBOOK RELEASE: Fit for the Gods
Greek mythology -- resurrected in the present day!
It was a delight to join the cast for this collection of stories! I love modern retellings of mythology and folklore, and Greek Mythology is my absolute favorite. Myths are themselves fantastic vehicles to explore — via metaphor and allegory — the most intimate and powerful parts of human experience.
FIT FOR THE GODS contains a variety of imaginativestories, and in this Greco-Roman-inspired collection, the common thread isn’t just a modern setting; there is revisiting, reframing, and revealing new takes on some of the definitive themes in ancient Greek culture. From foregrounding Queer identities and sexualities to addressing patriarchy and misogyny head-on, these authors transform the classics into brand new creations. It’s not simply a “same story, different scenery” situation. I hope these stories will both delight and surprise you as they did for me.
FIT FOR THE GODS is directed by Allen Towbin and produced by Random House Audio.
