of the seminar he teaches, in which his father is a lively often obstreperous presence The students are invigorated In acknowledging the power of the Homeric poem to bring depth to human relations, Mendelsohns father is acknowledging the value of his sons world and expertise The recognition leaves Mendelsohn free to see through his fathers hardnesshis exacting standards for everythingto the vulnerable fighter within a scrappy, strategizing Odysseus from the Bronx What solace or despair resides in the unexpected relevance of this ancient poem, its encounters with Otherness thrown into high relief by the xenophobia of our time Three millennia later, we have yet to habitually turn to the bedraggled stranger and take note of his tears Poignant Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, The Atlantic Tender complex and moving a book that has much to say about fathers and sons On one level, An Odysseyelegantly retells the story of Mendelsohns Odyssey course, complete with all the gags, competition, and good cheer of an intergenerational bromance But it dives deeper, excavating a portrait of Mendelsohns special student, his father his lonely childhood, his early brilliance, his forfeiture of Latin for a life of numbers Why a man so warm could be so cold As Mendelsohn unpeels the layers of his fathers life and education, he dramatizes the beautyand tediumof the classroom The reality of instruction is messy Mendelsohn happily shows us how difficult the transference of passion can be In this way, the students become supporting characters to the books hero, Mendelsohns father, who lurks in the corner like a hero in disguise There is but one ending to the book within a year, Jay would die, and so Mendelsohns journeyindeed like Homerswould be undertaken after the fact, when something remained to be learned It is a remarkable feat of narration that such a forbiddingly erudite writer can show us how necessary this education is, how provisional, how frightening, how comforting.John Freeman, The Boston Globe By turns family memoir, brilliant literary criticism, and a narrative of education Most of all, An Odyssey is a love story Mendelsohn makes his way through the text of the Odyssey, but also tells a larger, personal storyof his family Both odysseys focus on quests, recognitions, homecomings The book asks How can you really know anyone else A truth everywhere acknowledged in Mendelsohns odyssey is that everyone has a story, just as every hero has a flaw, and that everyone needs stories to get through life Mendelsohn is the professor every college kid dreams about learned, sympathetic, encouraging and challenging in equal measure Like Homer, Mendelsohn makes us grateful for journeys, and the companionsespecially our familieswho accompany us along our individual and collective paths In An Odyssey, he reels us in with a storytellers strongest gifts passion, clarity, and timing Willard Spiegelman, Wall Street Journal Fascinating intensely moving There are many moments to cherish in this tangled and passionate investigation Mendelsohns exploration is both a personal family memoir and a critical report on Homers epic, and the two facets illuminate each other Mendelsohn is an imaginative teacher, and the discussion of the Odyssey sparkles The Mediterranean cruise that father and son take pays off in surprising ways we get a haunting glimpse of the fear that the end of your journey means finis, the hope residual in permanent postponement Best of all are the various small recognitions that combine to build the late blossoming intimacy between father and son This is an honest, and loving, account of the improbable odyssey that gave them this one last deeply satisfying adventure together Peter Green, The New York Review of Books Heartfelt, touching a dazzlingly rich story of identity and recognition from an exacting critic and award winning memoirist.When his father enrolled in Mendelsohns undergraduate seminar, Mendelsohn didnt know his father would only have a year to live The course, and the cruise retracing Odysseys voyage to Ithaca a few months later, set in motion an emotional journey neither man could have anticipated With each new foray in his oeuvre, Mendelsohn discovers deeper truths about those we think we know, including ourselves Mendelsohns intelligence glitters on the page.Rajat Singh, Los Angeles Review of Books Mendelsohn is a force His sentences are freighted with knowledge, observation, and feeling Both the classroom experiencewhere Mendelsohns father Jay serves as a counterpoint to Mendelsohns sharp reading of the storyand the boat excursion they take offer opportunities his father slowly sheds his carapace and gives himself over to the adventure, revealing a side that weand his sonmay not have seen before.Mendelsohn is an encouraging teacher with enthusiasm and wonderful energy But perhaps most significantly, readers come to understand him as a man with long borne emotions, for his relationship with his father has not been the easiest This father son journey with Homer as guide is no buddy story, but a hard fought, hard won, late life conciliation.Peter Lewis, Christian Science Monitor Fascinating Mendelsohn expertly examines the Odysseywith depth and classical acumen, extracting meaning from even its most subtle moments He explores its historical importance with the comfortable clarity of someone who has spent decades immersed in Greek literature He details his own relationship with the ancient poem, and he culls from the narrative many insights into his own familial bonds, specifically with his father But the most entertaining part may be the classroom scenes By the end of the semester, Mendelsohns father had become part of the class and his presence leads to a revealing and dramatic moment An Odysseyis a journey worth taking.Jonathan Russell Clark, San Francisco Chronicle Moving a surprising piece of arta masterful memoir of reading, teaching and learning a book as full of twists and turns as its subject, often beautiful too The Homeric questions about fidelity, heroism and survival are elevated from Mendelsohns seminar by the relationship between the two men This is a story of reconciling a scientist and an artist Jay, the man of calculus, comes to influence both his son and his fellow pupils As well as a contribution to the art of memoir, An Odyssey is a vivid defence of the close rereading of a classical text, the tiny questions from which bigger pictures become clear Peter Stothard, The Financial Times Enlighteningengaging, gripping and deeply moving Mendelsohn explores the enduring relevance of Homers Odysseythrough a memoir tracing the complex relationship between father and son.Library Journal starred review Beguiling in this memoir, Mendelsohn recounts a freshman class on the Odyssey he taught at Bard College with his father, an 81 year old computer scientist, sitting in Mendelsohn gradually unwraps layers of timeless meaning in the ancient Greek poem Homeric heroes offer resonant psychological parallels to a modern family Mendelsohn weaves trenchant literary analysis and family history into a luminous whole A gem Publishers Weekly Sharply intelligent A frequent contributor to the New Yorkerand the New York Times Book Review, Mendelsohn is also a classics scholar His father, a retired mathematician, had been interested in the classics during his school days and decided to continue his education by studying with his son Ultimately, this book is about what they learn about each otherand what they can never know about each other The author uses a close reading of the epic to illuminate the mysteries of the human condition he skillfully, subtly interweaves textual analysis with the lessons of life outside it A well told story that underscores the power of storytelling Kirkus, starred review There are a handful of books that have captured the pleasure and romance of the classics Donna Tartts The Secret Historywas one This is another What happens in this book isnt really its point its about the telling than the tale And the telling is breathtaking Homer has a phrase for those who can speak bewitchingly they have wingd words Mendelsohn has wingd words.Catherine Nixey, The Times UK Radiant a candid, majestic book on the art of teaching, and the push pull relationship between professor and student, especially if the student is ones father At the books center is Mendelsohns father Jay, whose presence in the classroom bewilders and charms the other students and his son Mendelsohn artfully allows Jay to define himself through bluster and unexpected moments of tenderness With skill and passion Mendelsohn underscores how and why Homer still resonates today Intimate connections between Greek myths and our own lives reveal the author at his singular best With this graceful and searching memoir, we all drink from the cup of knowledge proffered by one of our leading philosopher writers.Hamilton Cain, Star Tribune Lucid textual analysis of Homers the Odyssey , and a profound meditation on the inherent unknowability of the men who raise us More than that, An Odysseyis a moving portrait of the father Mendelsohn comes to know in the last years of his fathers life a quest that is the beating heart of the book I came away with a renewed and deepened sense of the rewards found in a close reading of the Odyssey The poem is about life itself marriage, fidelity, homecoming, fatherhood, sonship, duty, honor, love, and in true Greek style, preparation for death To encounter the poem, and to read it deeply, is to encounter ourselves Thomas Jacobs, America MagazineSpellbinding multi layered, inclusive With bardic capacity, Mendelsohn tells a story that is heroic in scope yet distinctly humble in manner Mendelsohn s keen, penetrating observations plumb the micro emotions of the several stories interwoven here Slowly, painstakingly and with abiding, warm humor, Mendelsohn pursues reconciliation with his prickly father, who becomes a cantankerous student in Mendelsohns seminar at Bard College The books magic is in moving from topic to topic, setting to setting, insight to insight, ancient to modern over what is sometimes no than a paragraph break, and with no creaking of the narrative machinery A meditation on filial love as candid, tender and in its own way ruthless as its counterparts in the Bible, Shakespeare and Homer written with style as remarkable and flexible as the Odyssey, with sentences Proustian in complexity yet lucid and balanced both dense and fleet, and wholly captivating.Tim Pfaff, The Bay Area Reporter Its hard to pierce a legend, even when its just generation old family lore As author professor, Mendelsohn doesnt lecture his storytelling leaves room for other teachers including his current students, his former professors and relatives who decode multi layered family myths All of these relationships yield an emotional bounty, nourished by memories, loyalty, love or some combination of the three Equal parts lit crit class, language lesson and memoir, An Odyssey create s its own unique and compelling sub genre Each element of Mendelsohns story is buffed to perfection Brilliant Alison Buckholtz, Florida Times UnionA memorable mixture of literature and life One of the students in Mendelsohn s spring undergraduate seminar on Homer s Odysseywas quite different from the others Mendelsohn s own father.Classroom discussions of Odysseus long, wandering journey home to Ithaca led father and sonto undertakea real lifeMediterranean cruise retracing the Greek warriors travels.Mendelsohn begins to see his father in a new light even while the older manchallenges the basic tenets of Homers epic It is ajourney of understanding they undertake together.Interesting and instructive.Bridget Thoreson, Booklist Brimming with longing and heartbreak A noted memoirist and venerable contributor to a myriad of respected periodicals, Daniel Mendelsohn doesnt hold back In this memoir, he turns his attention to two men who have influenced a large portion of his life Homer, and his own father An Odysseycarefully unpacks details from Homers epic poem, with the author taking the stance of a vigilant observer Witnessing his fathers guileless rediscovery of the ancient text, Mendelsohns lifes work as a classicist is turned on its head The revelations and thoughts of the central characters of Homers Odysseyserve as portals to deeper understanding of contemporary relationships Studying and essentially mirroring Homers legendary work allowed both the Mendelsohn father and son to find new dimensions for their love of one another While the events of An Odysseyconclude with Jay passing away, the vibrant stamp he left behind on his son is evidenced by the profundity of the memoirs pages Its an epic reconciliation, albeit a quiet one, focused on all that hed been given by his father, celebrating their mutual love and respect.Michael Raver, The Huffington PostFamily memoirs are often chronicles of estrangement and rapprochement, typically seeking to wring meaning from the haze of grief or regret In this quest, Mendelsohn transcends the demands of the genre with his customary blend of linguistic elegance and narrative panache He dares readers to engage with the complexities of Homers epic poem and apply its lessons to their own lives As the memoir unspools, Mendelsohns narrative grip tightens, and the sons search for his father becomes poignant and powerful.Julia M Klein, The ForwardCompelling a memorable journey through worlds both ancient and contemporary As I read Mendelsohns wonderfully precise textual analysis of Homer, I couldnt help but think how similar his interpretative method is to the ways in which Biblical scholars parse the Torah for deeper understanding With each reading, there is also to glean So, too, does Mendelsohn gain insight into his father, and thus himself, at every step along the way An Odysseyis a multi layered tale a lesson in learning through the journey of life.Diane Cole, Jewish WeekDeeply personal Mendelsohn traces his emotional, intellectual and physical journeys with his father, which he weaves with Homers epic poem about Odysseus long journey home from battle.Robert Nagler Miller, J Weekly Enjoyable An Odyssey describes a sons touching mission to understand his father In a thoroughly Odyssean conceit, Mendelsohn questions what it takes to recognise the qualities of ones kin The appeal of the book lies in the lacunae between Mendelsohns understanding of his father and ours Teaching his father initially seems to teach Mendelsohn only how little they have in common, but if any subject can dissolve their differences, it is Classics Everyone who embarks on an Odyssean quest must fail in his own way The author doesnt fail to achieve Odysseuss heroism Can a son ever know his father at all It is to Mendelsohns credit that he poses the question before it is too late Daisy Dunn, The New StatesmanA rich and richly textured book a tour de force.Combining an in depth literary analysis with a personal narrative is a bold enterprise An Odysseycould have been, in the hands of a lesser writer, grandiose It isnt It is so well written that every page makes you feel alert and alive The brilliance of An Odysseylies in the insightfulness of the writing, as Mendelsohn immerses himself in the text of Homers Odyssey lives it, breathes it, and presses it for meaning He is particularly good at physical descriptions he is also good at demonstrating how difficult it is to understand our parents, the small ways in which we hurt one another, and the tender moments The ending is heartbreaking.Through Homer, Mendelsohn has created a memorial his father an extraordinary act of filial love.Helen Morales, Times Literary Supplement UK Mendelsohn is an artful storyteller whose skills are equal to the task of weaving Homers poem into his own life In this insightful, tender book, Mendelsohn gracefully marries literary criticism and memoir to describe an intellectual and personal journey that becomes one of profound discovery for both father and son Most impressive are his transitions from scholarly consideration of The Odyssey to intimate stories of his family life, as when the class discussion flows effortlessly into a magical moment, witnessing his father Jay as he offers a heartbreakingly beautiful tribute to his wife There are many wise lessons to be gleaned from this lovely book.Harvey Freedenberg, BookPageFascinating by turns cerebral, lively and poignant Mendelsohn has achieved an enviable renown as essayist, literary critic and author of autobiographical explorations undergirded by insights from classic texts In Homers Odyssey,Telemachus, now 20, is searching for the father he has never known likewise, while teaching a course on the Odyssey,Mendelsohn discovers that the classroom becomes a way to better understand his cantankerous father In lesser hands, this sort of parallelism would seem gimmicky, but not here Its clear that Mendelsohns Socratic method of teaching via dialogue rather than lecture forces everyone, including himself, to see things with fresh eyes Every step of the way, An Odysseycharts a remarkable journey made indelible by Mendelsohns elegant prose.Dan Cryer, NewsdayRich surprising, seamless Mendelsohn is perhaps the most accessible contemporary ambassador of the classics An Odysseymakes his most convincing case to date for their vital necessity The book argues that Homers classic may be, than anything else, a family saga In An OdysseyMendelsohn places himself in the Telemachus role to ponder his relationship to his own father, who, like many fathers seems to have at some point drifted away This book is as much tribute to the magic that can occur in the classroom as an unlikely tale of a father and sons spiritual reunion It is an adventure in criticism and in familial reckoning, telling the story of how Daniel and his father get to know each other in the last year of his fathers life Mendelsohn takes us through the Odysseyalongside his class, meanwhile drawing comparisons between his and his fathers journeys, and those of Odysseus and Telemachus Mendelsohn has honed a method of mixing memoir and criticism to reflect on the problems of contemporary life through the lens of the Greek classics Whats remarkable is the extent to which the Odysseytruly does help himand usunderstand our lives.Craig Morgan Teicher, Bookforum A brilliant new memoir richer and deeper than Mendelsohns previous work At its core, it is a funny, loving portrait of a difficult but loving parent Mendelsohns father, Jay, who is, like the Homeric hero Odysseus and perhaps all of us, polytropos many sided or much turning Mendelsohn sets an account of the Homeric Odysseyalongside a nuanced portrait of his own complicated familial and quasi familial relationships, including a vivid picture of Mendelsohns anger, anxieties and embarrassments about his father The book shows us how his desire to become aclassicist was shaped in part by the desire to please his father, and how he shares some of his fathers need to be always right Most powerfully, Mendelsohn contrasts his account of Homer with his fathers critical response the meeting of the two perspectives leads to a far richer reading of the poem The fault lines mapped in the disagreements offather and son correspond to some of the most fascinating interpretative questions of The Odysseyitself Mendelsohn is a perceptive literary critic and a self consciously elegant writer An Odysseyis a stellar contribution to the genre of memoirs about readingliterary analysis and the personal stories are woven together in a way that feels both artful and natural Athoughtful book from which non classicists will learn a great deal about Homer.Emily Wilson, The Guardian UK A marvellously entertaining and wise chronicle of Mendelsohns and his fathers odyssey, first in the classroom and then on a tour of the seas around Greece Mendelsohn senior reveals himself to be a clever questioner and someone capable of motivating a class of reluctant youngsters Revelations about the sorrows of war, the pangs of love, the craft of matrimony and the laws of travel are had A good book leaves you wanting , Mendelsohns father observes after finishing his sons seminar This is powerfully true of this moving new odyssey as well Alberto Manguel, Literary Review UK A gentle, at times almost nostalgic, work Mendelsohns lithe prose flits seamlessly across intervals and registers, switching from erudite exposition one minute to emotion filled reminiscence the next An accomplished, brave book that testifies to what is perhaps the Odysseys most abiding message that intelligence has little value if it isnt allied to love William Skidelsky, The Observer UK In An Odyssey, the act of reading Homer tests a father son relationship Besides creating page turning narrative tension, Mendelsohns father Jays skepticism raises a question What good are classics to a modern life Jewel like moments and meditations arise Giancarlo Buonomo, The New Republic Extraordinary .Mendelsohn is the closest thing American classicists have to a hometown celebrity his nonpareil prose has been recognized in wide literary circles An Odysseywill speak to souls already well watered by Homer and to those who have yet to drink from his well An Odysseyis about the challenge we face in attempting to assemble our own prehistories It is, in other words, the challenge of figuring out your parents A deeply personal, profoundly moving meditation.Johanna Hanink, Eidolon Wise and deeply humanea many layered memoir a remarkably warm and intimate book, one that brings an ancient wonder into modern life and creates heroes on a less than epic scale Mendelsohn explains how his relationship with his father was historically spiky, characterised by patches of silence and distance Under the teacher pupil bond, however, it flourishes Even as Mendelsohn lights up hidden meanings in the Odysseyand universal resonances for the reader, he is not only conveying his knowledge about the epic, but about the little things, too, those details that make a person who they are In every way, this book is an education.Victoria Segal, The Sunday Times London Brave A memoir that itself is a deeply Odyssean work, not just structurally, but thematically as Mendelsohn takes us through Homers epic, he reveals how its themes the passing of time, identity and recognition, the bonds between fathers and sons, husbands and wives resonate across his and his fathers lives The book thus enacts a truth that has long been central to Mendelsohns writing and teaching, which is that the great works of antiquity remain relevant today This is a gentle, at times almost nostalgic, work Mendelsohns lithe prose flits seamlessly across intervals and registers, switching from erudite exposition one minute to emotion filled reminiscence the next This accomplished book testifies to what is perhaps the Odysseys most abiding message that intelligence has little value if it isnt allied to love.William Skidelsky, The Guardian UK Brilliant not just a memoir but a celebration of Homers great poem Throughout we learn not only of the nuances and stories of the Odyssey,but the actual structure as well, illustrated by the author placing his own story in the parameters of the Greek epic Mendelsohn proves to be a wonderful teacher he confidently leads you through the ancient text He also tells an intimate story about a father and son who dont become close until late in life If Homers The Odysseyis about any one thing its about stories, imagined or real, heroic or tragic This memoir is also the story of another father and son and the stories they reacted and told each other.James Conrad, Chronogram A poignant and funny memoir as well as a stirring work of literary criticism VultureBest Books of 2017 so far A beautiful personal narrative and literary interpretation an elegiac work in which the Odyssey comes back to life The ancient storys leaving and coming back to shared memories is also a strength of a sons tribute to his father By turns Mendelsohn becomes closer to his father as the two men take a journey of late life friendship Michael D Langan, The Buffalo News Part odyssey, part memoir, part lit crit and part classroom drama, swirling back through time.Mendelsohn has long been the plangent voice connecting the ancients with us But the connectivity never hit home as hard until her undertook An Odyssey, which is is essentially a seminar of reading a human being That human being is his father, and so his erudition is ennobled, and electrified, with true very human love An Odysseyis a vindication of Mendelsohns theory that every man is a great text and the nobility of close reading When the text is great and the man is your father, close reading gives life back to the lines and the space between them Joshua David Stein, Fatherly Beguiling The ancient tension between fathers and sons that Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war, points out in the Odysseyis still simmering when father Jay takes his corner seat in son Daniel s Odyssey class Mendelsohn s book keeps four stories aloft at once a summary of The Odyssey his account of the class he teaches the story of his relationship with his father and an account of his own and his father s life The refreshing thing about An Odysseyis that its a repudiation of the cultism of the classics Reading The Odyssey, the great book, with your failing old man, and keeping each other company in the parallel epic known as life is a memory that will last longer than anything on your cellphone.Ian Brown, The Globe and Mail Canada Named a Best Book of 2017 by NPR, Library Journal, The Christian Science Monitor,and NewsdayA Kirkus Best Memoir of 2017Shortlisted for the 2017 Baillie Gifford PrizeFrom award winning memoirist and critic, and bestselling author of The Lost a deeply moving tale of a father and son s transformative journey in reading and reliving Homer s epic masterpiece.When eighty one year old Jay Mendelsohn decides to enroll in the undergraduate Odyssey seminar his son teaches at Bard College, the two find themselves on an adventure as profoundly emotional as it is intellectual For Jay, a retired research scientist who sees the world through a mathematician s unforgiving eyes, this return to the classroom is his one last chance to learn the great literature he d neglected in his youth and, even , a final opportunity to fully understand his son, a writer and classicist But through the sometimes uncomfortable months that the two men explore Homer s great work together first in the classroom, where Jay persistently challenges his son s interpretations, and then during a surprise filled Mediterranean journey retracing Odysseus s famous voyages it becomes clear that Daniel has much to learn, too Jay s responses to both the text and the travels gradually uncover long buried secrets that allow the son to understand his difficult father at last As this intricately woven memoir builds to its wrenching climax, Mendelsohn s narrative comes to echo the Odyssey itself, with its timeless themes of deception and recognition, marriage and children, the pleasures of travel and the meaning of home Rich with literary and emotional insight, An Odyssey is a renowned author scholar s most triumphant entwining yet of personal narrative and literary exploration.
