Men of Winter, A Revised & Expanded Edition, by Ted Morrissey, is the story of journalist and poet Hektr Pastrovich, who journeys to the front of a war his beleaguered country has been fighting for nine years in hopes of uncovering the tale of a strange vagabond known as “the Prince of Ithaka.”  Along the way, Hektr meets a host of odd characters, including a beautiful and charismatic woman traveling alone who adopts the name “Helena.”  The novel is a revisionist work of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey.  Originally published in 2010 by a different press, this revised and expanded edition includes a Preface by the author, an interview by Beth Gilstrap, an Afterword by Adam Nicholson, and questions to facilitate book club and classroom discussions. Download a flyer for the novel.
