Author(s): Daniel Chavarria
Paperback reissue of the Ancient-Greek thriller nominated for an Anthony Award and a 2004 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. The Eye of Cybele is equal parts historical epic, whodunnit-style thriller, highbrow erotica and philosophical discourse. Set in the fifth century B.C. - during the reign of Pericles - the novel fictionally recreates the behind-the-scenes scandals and political intrigues that occupied the Athenian home front at the height of the Peloponessian War.
