Main description:

This audacious reimagining of The Odyssey finds Penny home alone while Payne, a modern-day Odysseus, gallivants around the world on battleships and attack helicopters, waging wars of conquest. A drinking, drugging crew of ne’er-do-well squatters surrounds Penny, eager for her attention. Even their most eyebrow-raising exploits can’t distract her, though, as she angrily pines for Payne. But when a mysterious man with suspicious origins arrives on the scene, the suitors’ precarious pecking order falls to pieces in the glow of Penny’s newly ignited ardor.

Brutal, playful, sexy, and subversive, The Suitors is a classic of its own kind.

Review quote:

"The Suitors is an immensely clever novel . . . powerful . . . [an] unbroken pleasure."

Review quote:

"A beautifully structured and inventive novel . . . that will pull you back to it again and again."

Review quote:

"A compassionately conceived storytelling expedition into a world where epic struggles from the past and the present converge and converse."

Review quote:

"A feast fit for all of humanity’s inner vampires. Bloody, orchestral and exquisitely hopeful, it will spear you through the heart."

Review quote:

"A unique, powerful new voice full of passion."

Review quote:

"At once anarchic and stirring, The Suitors has the well-earned confidence of its own crazy music."

Review quote:

"Blends Tom Robbins’ sly humor with Steve Erickson’s bubbling sense of the subconscious and Voltaire’s irreverent twists of plot."

Review quote:

"Brilliant, and at the same time moving. It’s a relief to know that literature exists yet."

Review quote:

"Delicious . . . Ehrenreich’s prodigious, Joycean prose establishes him as a writer to watch."

Review quote:

"Ehrenreich writes with an ease and pure line-by-line skill that’s rare."

Review quote:

"Gorgeous and brutal, sexy and sly and sad."

Review quote:

"This is truly a ravishing book."

Review quote:

"Smart and funny, taking swipes at the Bush administration, the Iraq war, and the notion of heroism, in this or any other age."
