The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood

The Penelopiad: The Myth of Penelope and Odysseus - Margaret Atwood

A creative take on the story of Odysseus' wife and her point of view on the Odyssey. It was a fairly quick read, but I rather enjoyed it. It helped to have read The Odyssey, but would still be a good read without.
