Lyrical, meditative and artfully stark, Tóibín retells the ancient Greek tragedy of the House of Atreus. Bringing the mythical characters Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, Orestes and Electra to life, Tóibín recounts tales of intimate violence, murderous actions, exile and survival in the most devastatingly human fashion. This is storytelling at its best.
