Mythos by Stephen Fry

Staff Pick

Mythos (Chronicle Books, $29.95) is a modern retelling of the classic Greek myths by the legendary Stephen Fry. With his usual wry wit and charm, Fry weaves the tales together in chronological order with plenty of context for those who may be unfamiliar—and with plenty of new insight for those who are revisiting the stories once again. For those who are truly tickled by Fry’s sense of humor, you may find yourself laughing out loud on many occasions as he comments on everything from the English language’s tricky borrowings from Ancient Greek to the pettiness of the Gods’ familial spats. Not only is this book highly entertaining, it is a beautiful gift for history and art lovers who will appreciate the full- color illustrations. This could also be an excellent choice for readers who loved Madeline Miller’s Circe and are anxious to explore more.
