Colm Tóibín's latest novel is a retelling of the story of Clytemnestra and her children. Judged and cursed by gods she has long since lost faith in, the murderess Clytemnestra tells of the deception of Agamemnon, how he sacrificed her eldest daughter, her beloved Iphigenia and how she plots his downfall, waiting many long years until her beacon fires announce the king's return. In turn her daughter, Electra, plots against her mother and waits for her brother to return and avenge his father. Toibin brings the story alive with insight and fine craft.
