Infidelity. The Greek myths visit the Lone Star State and the Briscoe family in Stacey Swann’s debut novel titled, Olympus, Texas. First, draw the rural Texas town of your choice. Second, introduce the town’s leading family and imbue them with hubris and infidelity. Third, multiply the characters and stir. The result gives a contemporary take on mythology and the glories of dysfunctional families. Grab some popcorn, watch the family fireworks, and try to predict the next wrong turn in Briscoe family life.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
