Please Support Your Community News Site's COVID Coverage

The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

This collection of stories is based on Ovid’s nearly 12,000-line poem, Metamorphoses. The stories in both the original and in this collection recount Roman myths of transformation, such as the tales of Daphne, Eurydice, and Arachne. In McLaughlin’s version, they’re all told from the female characters’ perspective. Seductresses, goddesses, nymphs, and ordinary women seek love and vengeance and endure violence and sexual assault in a rollicking retelling that is full of attitude, lyricism, and wit.
