We shiver when Pandora opens her jar of evil torments and watch with joy as the legendary love affair between Eros and Psyche unfolds.Mythos captures these extraordinary myths for our modern age - in all their dazzling and deeply human relevance.If you're enthralled by the magic of Greek mythology you'll love Fry's follow-up book Heroes which is OUT NOW, with tales of mortals and monsters, quests and adventures . . . ___________*SHORTLISTED FOR A NATIONAL BOOK AWARD*'Ebullient and funny' The Times'Entertaining and edifying' Daily Telegraph'A rollicking good read' Independent'Fry exhibits enormous erudition and enthusiasm' Mail on Sunday'Fry takes us from Zeus to Athena with humour.
