The Fall of Troy is a feminist reimagining of the Iliad, set in the Greek underworld. When Helen of Troy enters the afterlife, she must face all the heroes who died in the war she caused — and they aren't ready to forgive her.

  • The lingering trauma of war
  • Lovingly-described weaponry
  • All the myths you think you know, retold
