Product Details


Olympus, Texas is the most wildly entertaining novel I’ve read in a long time, and Stacey Swann is a writer to watch.”
Richard Russo, author of Chances Are . . .
“The endearing characters of Olympus, Texas gallop through a plot luscious with secrets and scandals. Escape to Olympus for the rollicking fun. Stay for the heartbreakingly lyrical writing and tender message about the enduring gift that is family love.”
Sarah Bird, best-selling author of Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen

“An uncanny twin-myth of modern Texas and ancient Greece that feels familiar and strange, loving and painful—like family itself. Olympus, Texas is an achievement of sustained brilliance, and an audacious opening to Swann’s fated journey into the canon of greats.”
Smith Henderson, author of Fourth of July Creek

“A moving and exhilarating debut! With exquisite prose and unerring pace, Swann guides us through the strained-loyalties, love affairs, and violent disasters of a rural Texas town populated by characters as vibrant and compelling as the ancient gods they echo. Swann masterfully crafts both soul-stirring moments of connection and gasp-out-loud action—often on the same page. With the wit of Flannery O’Connor and the emotional scope of Donna Tartt, Swann sings family in all its painful, riveting beauty. I love this novel!”
Owen Egerton, author of Hollow and The Book of Harold, the Illegitimate Son of God 

“A remarkable debut. Olympus, Texas is a gripping, big-hearted epic, full of characters you may recognize and will absolutely remember.”
Jennifer duBois, author of The Spectators
