About this title

Synopsis:

This is the story of a man who hides a dark secret from his past. Despite the fact that he has served his time and changed his name, there are too many people around who have not forgotten that Morrow is a murderer. He is pursued by a collection of strange characters.

Review:

One of the most profoundly intelligent, introspective novels of recent years, questioning the perceptions of author, narrator, reader and critic. (Good Book Guide)

The consummately achieved and entrancing creation of a master of language: in the fullest sense a work of art. (Scotsman)

Athena is a love letter to Morrow’s passions, to love, to art and to the paintings he examines: works on classical themes, in which a moment’s obsession, lust, loss and magic are preserved for ever. (Literary Review)
