You may remember the story of the Odyssey from high school: Odysseus, the cyclops, the witch Circe and how she turned his men to pigs.

Author Madeline Miller has written two New York Times' best-selling books retelling these classics. Her newest book "Circe" imagines the story of the goddess from her own perspective.
