Join Irish author Daniel Kelly reading from his new book, The Fall of the Phoenix, a startling new take on The Trojan War.

The long siege of Troy, the battles fought over it, and the city's eventual capitulation and incineration are events which have often been retold since their first recitation by Homer. Seldom, however, will they have been narrated with such close attention to the minute particulars of battle, to its reek and terror and pain, as in this startling account by Daniel Kelly. Kelly looks minutely at every detail of archaic combat, as well as at the lives and feelings shaped by it.

Daniel Kelly grew up with a love of history and stories, in the village of Creeslough along the north coast of Donegal, before qualifying as a chef from Tourism College, Killybegs, and moving to Dublin.
