Troy

5th August 2019

In Troy, Stephen Fry brings to life the legendary kidnapping of the beautiful Helen, for whom the Greeks launched a thousand ships and lay siege for ten bloody years; king of the gods Zeus, who triggered war when he asked Trojan prince Paris to judge the fairest goddess of all; and the terrible, brutal war with casualties on all sides.

Following his bestsellers Mythos and Heroes, in this new novel Stephen shares tales of heroism and hatred, revenge and regret, and desire and despair – and showing how these human passions still speak to us today.
