Autobiography of Red: A Novel in Verse

by: Anne Carson

This verse novel by Anne Carson tackles the concepts of family, identity, sexuality, and more. Combining allusions to Greek mythology, rhapsodic language that rolls endlessly around in your brain post-read, fascinating geological settings, and the details of a burgeoning homosexual romance, the novel perfectly encapsulates the torments of a bildungsroman while giving the reader a glimpse of the regular life of Geryon, a red boy with wings.
