Manchester Literature Festival
It’s the story of Medusa, the mortal raised by her Gorgon sisters, mistreated by Poseidon, and hunted by Perseus. It’s a version that sheds light on who’s really angry, who’s privileged, who’s wronged, who’s content, and who’s an arrogant brat; turning the story you think you know on its snake covered head.
Natalie is the author of three previous novels, ‘The Amber Fury’, shortlisted for the McIlvanney Prize; ‘The Children of Jocasta’ and ‘A Thousand Ships’, and non-fiction books ‘The Ancient Guide to Modern Life’ and ‘Pandora’s Jar’. She is the writer and performer of the BBC Radio 4 show, Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics. In 2015, she was awarded the Classical Association Prize for her work in bringing Classics to a wider audience. Hosted by Naomi Frisby, writer and co-host of Late To It podcast.
