The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker

£18.99

There was a woman at the heart of the Trojan war whose voice has been silent – till now. Briseis was a queen until her city was destroyed. Now she is slave to Achilles, the man who butchered her husband and brothers.

Trapped in a world defined by men, can she survive to become the author of her own story?Discover the greatest Greek myth of all – retold by the witness history forgot. ‘Make[s] you reflect on the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, the women throughout history who have been told by men to forget their trauma… You are in the hands of a writer at the height of her powers’

Independent: ‘Barker is a writer of crispness and clarity and an unflinching seeker of the germ of what it means to be human’

Herald: ‘You go to her for plain truths, a driving storyline and a clear eye, steadily facing the history of our world’
