The award-winning essayist, classicist, translator, and cultural critic speaks about his latest book with BPAC Director, Ted Altschuler.  Mendelsohn recounts his travels around the Mediterranean with his late father, a scientist, while reading Homer’s Odyssey, making for a book that is, according to New York Times critic Dwight Garner, classroom drama, travel writing, biographical memoir, and literary criticism.  “…this is a rich introduction or reintroduction.  Mendelsohn makes Homer’s epic shine in your mind. I was impressed by how lightly yet superbly he wears his learning in An Odyssey,” wrote Garner, “What catches you off guard about this memoir is how moving it is.”

“Arguably the best writer and critic at work today…There is nothing to which he does not bring a fresh perspective.” – The New York  Review of Books
