From the author of A THOUSAND SHIPS comes a sharp and witty correction to the popularly known Greek myths. Centering on the women often villainized or pushed to the side, this book flips the narrative on its head, giving the women the same weight as the men in classic Greek myths. Natalie Haynes’ brilliant book, PANDORA'S JAR, makes readers question why they were so quick to accept the stories they’ve been told.
