A Thousand Ships
by Natalie Haynes
Praise For This Book:
"With her trademark passion, wit, and fierce feminism, Haynes gives much-needed voice to the silenced women of the Trojan War. Her thoughtful portraits will linger with you long after the book is finished." -Madeline Miller, author of Circe

"A Thousand Ships does more than acknowledge the suffering of women. It tells in lively fashion gripping tales of bravery, treachery and revenge. . . . It's a timely notion as the modern world reckons with who gets to tell the stories of its diverse populations." -Washington Post

"Savvy and well plotted... Haynes's inventiveness in conjuring the lives of Greek and Trojan women through... evocative details keeps the novel humming." -New York Times Book Review

"Absorbing and fiercely feminist ... this subversive re-seeing of the classics is a many-layered delight." -Guardian

"A witty, unapologetically feminist story of women's suffering, courage, and endurance... Haynes' freshly modern version of an ancient tale is perfect for our times." -Booklist

"An enthralling reimagining of the lives of women from both Troy and Greek culture. . . . Haynes shines by twisting common perceptions of the Trojan War and its aftermath in order to capture the women's experiences." -Publishers Weekly
