Zachary Mason's The Lost Books of the Odyssey Reviewed in Gently Read Literature

Yet another glowing review of The Lost Books of the Odyssey, this time by Shawna Yang Ryan in the latest issue of Gently Read Literature. I reviewed/raved about Mason's stunning book in the last batch of reviews at NewPages. I'm glad to see this book still getting such positive attention.

I went to a reading by Zach Mason on impulse and was quite amazed. The book has the same quality of 'already known" as the most wonderful pieces of art (and Venice). I spoke to the author briefly and he told me that Invisible Cities is one of his favorite books. The most remarkable thing about a piece of art firmly placed in a conceptual framework is when it surprises you by having heart and humor written in, a lack of clinging to dryness and reserve. It also reminded me of the experience of standing inside the Museum of Jurassic Technology for that reason.
