By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

King of Ithaka

King of Ithaka - Tracy Barrett

A retelling of the Odyssey from the point of view of Telemakos. Barrett does a marvelous job of creating a sense of place and time, and the theme of coming to terms with family is nicely done.
