Award-winning author and critic Daniel Mendelsohn joins us to speak about his recent book An Odyssey: A Father, a Son, and an Epic. Homer’s masterpiece led him and his father, a retired research scientist, on a hilarious and poignant adventure when they decide to recreate Odysseus’ journey by following the hero’s path through the ancient Mediterranean world via cruise ship. The narrative comes to echo The Odyssey itself, with its timeless themes of deception and recognition, marriage and children, the pleasures of travel, and the meaning of home. Mendelsohn will discuss his memoir and the complexity of human relationships, the challenges of interpretations, and the human desire for endless discovery.
