The Suitors

(2006)
A novel by

 

"Brilliant, and at the same time moving. It's a relief to know that literature exists yet."
Juan Goytisolo


This audacious reimagining of The Odyssey finds Penny home alone while Payne, a modern-day Odysseus, gallivants around the world on battleships and attack helicopters, waging wars of conquest. A drinking, drugging crew of ne'er-do-well squatters surrounds Penny, eager for her attention. Even their most eyebrow-raising exploits can't distract her, though, as she angrily pines for Payne. But when a mysterious man with suspicious origins arrives on the scene, the suitors' precarious pecking order falls to pieces in the glow of Penny's newly ignited ardor.

Brutal, playful, sexy, and subversive, The Suitors is a classic of its own kind.
