A Memory of Wind by Rachel Swirsky

This was… beautiful.

Lyrical, sad, lovely.

The story of the beginning of the Trojan War from Iphigenia’s perspective. It was stark, and breezy and just fabulous. It’s hard to describe, but this story is still with me, months after I read it. In the end, it is almost not sad. Almost, but not quite, which is a considerable feat for a story about human sacrifice.

Looking forward to more by this author.
