Fans of C.S. Lewis and mythology are bound to love this brilliant, lesser-known novel.

Despite being lesser known than his other books, C.S. Lewis considered "Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold" his best work. The novel reimagines the tale of Cupid and Psyche through the perspective of Psyche’s disfigured and bitter older sister Queen Orual, who writes her story as a treatise against the gods. Through the painfully relatable character of Orual, Lewis expertly dives into the uglier parts of the human condition — jealousy, self-deception, toxic “love,” arrogance, and more. While the novel doesn’t shy away from portraying the ugly, it works up to a hopeful and truly profound ending. "Till We Have Faces" is the sort of novel that can inspire the important work of uncomfortable self-reflection, leaving its mark on the reader for years to come.
