Join bestselling author of The Lost Daniel Mendelsohn as he discusses his new memoir, An Odyssey, A Father and Son Epic (Knopf) with Anka Mulhstein.
An Odyssey is a deeply moving tale of a father and son’s transformative journey in reading–and reliving–Homer’s epic masterpiece. As this intricately woven memoir builds to its wrenching climax, Mendelsohn’s narrative comes to echo the Odyssey itself, with its timeless themes of deception and recognition, marriage and children, the pleasures of travel and the meaning of home. Rich with literary and emotional insight, An Odyssey is a renowned author-scholar’s most triumphant entwining yet of personal narrative and literary exploration.
