Alessandro Baricco was born in Turin in 1958 and still makes his home there. The author of four previous novels, he has won the Prix Mï¿½dicis ï¿½tranger in France and the Selezione Campiello, Viareggio, and Palazzo al Bosco prizes in Italy.
"For all those curious about The Iliad but intimidated by its heft, Baricco's book offers a swift, stylish, summer-reading version of the great epic." --San Francisco Chronicle "A taut and mesmerizing tale." --The Seattle Times "Baricco divides the tale into a series of monologues by characters both major and minor. The result is compelling, occasionally thrilling." --Entertainment Weekly
