I am thrilled to announce that xo Orpheus: Fifty New Myths, is officially out! It’s edited by the wonderful Kate Bernheimer, and offers fifty new takes on myths from lots of different traditions. Aside from my own GALATEA, you’ll find stories by Aimee Bender, Kevin Wilson, Joy Williams, Zachary Mason, Kelly Braffet and Owen King, and Max Gladstone–who does a terrific retelling of an episode from the Mahabharata. The collection has already gotten a rave review from Booklist. Myth-lovers, rejoice!
Reviews“A startlingly original work of art by an incredibly talented new novelist... a book I could not put down.” Ann Patchett, author of the Orange Prize-winning Bel Canto
