MEDUSA The Girl Behind the Myth

by | Read by Alisha Bailey

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

As Medusa, narrator Alisha Bailey's solemn, powerful delivery grants listeners a new perspective of this mythological figure. Exiled to an island with her sisters after trauma, tragedy, and a newly bestowed curse, Medusa spends her days in isolation--until a surprising visitor arrives on the shore. Bailey captures the tenderness and pain in the budding companionship as Perseus and Medusa talk without seeing each other and Medusa hides her name and face from her new friend. Bailey's portrayals illuminate the fierceness and humanity of Medusa and her sisters, the cruelty of the gods and humans who forced these youths into unbearable circumstances, and the desperation underpinning every choice they must make to survive.
