Zachary Mason


A reimagining of Ovid's epic poem Metamorphoses, which contains over 250 Greek myths. Here we have 53 short stories (some very short), each of which gets a new twist or reinterpretation. Like so many of the novels on this list, Mason gets inside these ancient characters' heads, showing us the situations from their perspectives, and making them feel human to modern readers. The loosely connected tales highlight the original work’s theme of metamorphosis or transformation.
