Praise

“Mendelsohn takes the classical costumes off figures like Virgil and Sappho and gives them a vivid urgency for the present moment … He writes about things so clearly they come to feel like some of the most important things you have ever been told.” —Sebastian Barry

“Mendelsohn’s points are always passionately argued. He strikes the perfect balance between learned and playful … One fascinating essay after another from one of America’s best critics.” —Kirkus, starred review
