About this title

Synopsis:

"Midas sates his lust for gold but turns his beloved daughter into a lifeless gold statue. The treacherous journey he undertakes to bring her back to life is an odyssey of self-evaluation....In Banks's masterly hands, Midas's classic character flaws are blended with contemporary human foibles to create a wonderfully vulnerable tragic hero....Banks get to the heart of the legend while fleshing out the story with first-rate adventure."--Publishers Weekly.
