The Autobiography of Cassandra, Princess and Prophetess of Troy - eBook
Available as a Kindle edition from Amazon here,
and as an Epub from Kobo here
This novel tells the Homeric story of Troy from the perspective of the woman who was condemned to not be believed — the perfect spokesperson for a contemporary feminist novel. Written with Molinaro's typical flair for concision, Cassandra is second only to the classic Positions with White Roses as Molinaro's best novel. And Molinaro has been sensitive to readers whose knowledge of Greek mythology is imperfect (meaning: all of us) by providing a witty glossary of the mortals and gods who people this dramatic story of courage and sacrifice. (Note: This novel was originally published in hardcover in 1979, four years prior to the better known and possibly derivative one on the same theme by Christa Wolf).
