Publisher's Summary

A brilliant and daring novel that reimagines Ovid's Metamorphoses

In the tradition of his best-selling debut novel The Lost Books of the Odyssey, Zachary Mason's Metamorphica transforms Ovid's epic poem of endless transformation. It reimagines the stories of Narcissus, Pygmalion and Galatea, Midas, and Atalanta and strings them together like the stars in constellations - even Ovid becomes a story. It's as though the ancient mythologies had been rewritten by Borges or Calvino.

Metamorphica is an archipelago in which to linger for a while; it reflects a little light from the morning of the world.
