Praise For This Book

'Beautiful and moving.' - Neil Gaiman

'Witty, gripping, ruthless.' - Margaret Atwood 'Feels at once bitingly (post)modern and filled with old wisdom ... Stone Blind acts as a brilliant and compellingly readable corrective.' - The Guardian

'The rollicking narrative voice that energises Stone Blind ... is a voice that feels at once bitingly (post)modern and filled with old wisdom ... The Gorgon's head will take on a new and powerful resonance as a symbol of the way stories can be warped by time. Stone Blind acts as a brilliant and compellingly readable corrective.' - The Observer

'Stone Blind is an exceptionally powerful retelling of Medusa's story, an emotional gut punch of a novel. Haynes brilliantly pulls off the feat of seamlessly alternating humour and heartbreak, creating characters that stay with you long after the novel's end. It is a dazzling achievement.' - Elodie Harper, author of The Wolf Den trilogy

'With this, her third novel based on ancient myth, [Haynes] has found a way of using all her classical erudition and her vivid sense of the ambiguous potency of the ancient stories, while being simultaneously very, very funny.' - The Guardian

'A fierce feminist exploration of female rage, written with wit and empathy. Haynes makes the classics brutally relevant, and we reckon this one is going to be huge.' - Glamour (UK) 'It is no exaggeration to say that Haynes is the modern embodiment of the best of Homer. She is a proper, classic storyteller, whose linguistic skills and wit will have you hanging on every word.' - Radio Times

'Stone Blind is inventive and playful . . . [and] very funny.' - Antonia Senior, The Times (UK
