Stephen Fry is an award-winning writer comedian actor and director. He rose to fame in A Bit of Fry & Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster. He hosted over 180 episodes of QI and narrated the audio versions of the Harry Potter novels. His books include four novels and three volumes of autobiography. He lives in Los Angeles and London.
“Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold supplies a wonderful reintroduction to some of the more popular stories...Fry wears his learning lightly, delivering a series of witty vignettes and stopping along the way to note the Greek origins of familiar words. ('Giant' derives from Gigantes, a group of primal deities known for their strength – though, interestingly, not their size.) Never again will you confuse Fates with Furies, or wonder why we have cornucopias."
