The Bridging of Troy - Chris Ackerley

Gollancz, 1986, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ a little ruffled at head of spine, bruising to same. Text bright and tight.

In this book you view the contemporary scene through the eyes of Diomedes, one of the survivors of the cruel struggle in Homers Illiad, and the legendary heroes take human shape. They prove to be far from stuffy, the mighty Agamemnon, Ajax, Achilles, Odysseus, Menelaus, Priam, Hector, Paris, Troilus, Aeneas and all the rest of the cast, not forgetting the incomparable Helen, who started it all. You learn the truth about the Judgement of Paris, the real story of the Achilles Heel and of the Trojan Horse. And, as you always suspected, the combatants turn out to be bridge players of varying degrees of skill. 128pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
