About the Book: The Song of Achilles
Winner of 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction
This is a retelling of The Illiad from the point of view of a young prince called Patroclus, exiled for accidentally killing a man, who falls head-over-heels in love with the brave Achilles. Patroclus follows Achilles into war, but it is their magnificent and very modern love story that makes this an epic. Built on the groundwork of The Iliad, Madeline Miller's page-turning, profoundly moving, and blisteringly paced retelling of the epic Trojan War marks the launch of a dazzling career.
