I only vaguely remembered Circe from The Odyssey as the woman who turns men to swine, but this epic tale really brought the goddess to life, and justified her actions against Odysseus' crew.

This memoir was especially poignant--and somewhat ironic--because of its discussion about how history is filtered through the historian. The author constantly reminded us that these were her recollections and, in footnotes, added what her other sibli ...more

“And there are never really endings, happy or otherwise. Things keep going on, they overlap and blur, your story is part of your sister's story is part of many other stories, and there is no telling where any of them may lead.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Patrick Rothfuss
“It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
