In Ancient Greece, a skilled marble sculptor has been blessed by a goddess who has given his masterpiece — the most beautiful woman the town has ever seen — the gift of life. Now his wife, Galatea is expected to be obedience and humility personified, but it is not long before she learns to use her beauty as a form of manipulation.
In a desperate bid by her obsessive husband to keep her under control, she is locked away under the constant supervision of doctors and nurses. But with a daughter to rescue, she is determined to break free, whatever the cost…
From the Orange Prize-winning author of The Song of Achilles, this short story is a dazzling retelling of the myth of Galatea.

    Not in order. First, Circe and then Galatea. After this, I'm going to read the song of Achilles.

    Feel how chilled your hands are?’

    It was almost sweet the way they worried about me.
    ‘You’re so pale,’ the nurse said. ‘You must keep quiet until your colour returns.’
    ‘I’m always this colour,’ I said. ‘Because I used to be made of stone.’
    The woman smiled vaguely, pulling up the blanket. My husband had warned her that I was fanciful, that my illness made me say things that would sound strange to her.
    ‘Just lie back and I’ll bring you something to eat,’ she said. She had a mole on the side of her lip and I liked to watch it while she talked. Some moles are beautiful and distinctive, like dappling on a horse. But some have hairs in them, and look pulpy like worms and hers was this kind.

    You grovel for her, but not me.
