The series that began in October with Karen Armstrong's compelling 'A Short History Of Myth' continues, with electrifying new works of fiction from two of the world's most loved writers.

Booker Award-winner Margaret Atwood, who has reworked the traditional telling of the Odyssey narrative, says: I've chosen to give the telling of the story to Penelope and to the twelve hanged maids. The maids form a chanting and singing chorus which focuses on two questions that must pose themselves after any close reading of The Odyssey: what led to the hanging of the maids, and what was Penelope really up to? The story as told in The Odyssey doesn't hold water; there are too many inconsistencies. I've always been haunted by the hanged maids; and in 'The Penelopiad', so is Penelope herself.
