Review:

"A dynamic encounter between modernity and the oldest stories known to Europe." (Robin Blake The Independent)

"I have no idea whether or not Roberto Calasso is a 'genius' but I do know that The Marriage Of Cadmus and Harmony is a perfect work like no other" (Gore Vidal)

"It will be read and re-read not as a treatise but as a story: one of the most extraordinary that has ever been written of the origins of Western self-consciousness" (Simon Schama)

"A masterpiece...a wonderfully fashioned work of art" (John Banville Irish Times)

"A brilliant and profound narration" (A. S. Byatt The Times)

Book Description:

Greco-Roman mythology meets and shapes a contemporary novel to form a book that is unprecedented and wonderful.
