Madeline Miller’s 2018 novel, 'Circe,' was a 'New York Times' #1 best-seller and appeared on dozens of “best books of 2018” lists, including NPR, 'People,' 'The Washington Post,' 'Time,' 'Entertainment Weekly,' Buzzfeed, Book Riot, and more. 'Circe' was also named 2018 Book of the Year by 'Publishers Weekly' and 'BookPage.' The novel, a retelling of the life story of the goddess and witch Circe, recasts the infamous figure who turned men into pigs in The Odyssey into a feminist hero. Miller's debut novel, 2011's best-selling 'The Song of Achilles,' won the prestigious Orange Prize for Fiction (now called the Women's Prize for Fiction).
