Troy: Our Greatest Story Retold - Stephen Fry

'Troy. The most marvellous kingdom in all the world . . .'

Paris the Trojan has kidnapped Helen, Greek queen and most beautiful woman of the ancient world.

A thousand ships give chase and lay siege to Troy. Yet the city stands resolutely against Greek might.

Only invulnerable Achilles and wily Odysseus may lead them to victory - but the passions of mortals merely amuse the Gods and blood is easily spilled on distant shores . . .
________

'Hugely successful, graceful' The Times

'Fluent, crisp, nuanced, begins with a bang'The Times Literary Supplement
