Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents Medusa by Jessie Burton, read by Alisha Bailey.

A dazzling, feminist retelling of Greek myth from the internationally best-selling author of The Miniaturist.

Exiled to a far-flung island by the whims of the gods, Medusa has little company except the snakes that adorn her head instead of hair. But when a charmed, beautiful boy called Perseus arrives on the island, her lonely existence is disrupted with the force of a supernova, unleashing desire, love and betrayal....

This astonishing retelling of Greek myth is perfect for fans of Circe and The Silence of the Girls. Illuminating the girl behind the legend, it brings alive Medusa for a new generation.

What the critics say

"Easily my read of the year. Sheer perfection from start to finish." (Catherine Doyle)

"This book is a beautiful excavation, uncovering the girl beneath the gorgon, the power within the punished. Exquisitely told, Medusa stole my heart from its first fierce lines." (Mary Watson) 

"Fierce and tender and full of heart; the reclamation of self that Medusa is owed, the version of the myth that deserves to be told, passed girl to girl, painted across walls and screamed from rooftops." (Melinda Salisbury)
