Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. To return to his hereditary throne on Ithaca, Telemachus, son of Odysseus and Penelope, musters the cleverness of his father and the wisdom of his mother as he navigates the treacherous waters of the War of the Families. More devastating than the Trojan War, this conflict pits the two greatest clans in ancient Greece: the Pelopides and Heraclides. It is the last gasp of a failing civilization. With remarkable parallels to today, Telemachus fights to maintain his beliefs and preserve his family. "This is a startlingly epic tale, ripe with originality and rendered with a highly adept ear for language. Beautifully written and exhaustively researched, the narrative builds on the history and age from which the material was born."

This novel is based on first-hand accounts of life during WW2 in southern France. The genesis and principal events of the novel were recounted some seventy years after the fact by a close friend: architect, scholar, father, government official, musician. When the occupation began, he joined the R?sistance, helping people escape France. As the war continued, he became dangerously caught up in resistance, transporting charcoal from Spain. In March 1943, the Gestapo arrested him following an all-night jam session with Django Reinhardt and Georges Ulmer (neither arrested). The Americans liberated him from Buchenwald in April 1945. As a recipient of the L?gion d?Honneur, among numerous other decorations, his story lies at the heart of this novel. He spent hours recounting his life during the war, literally with great pain. Although making this exception, his war-time experience never left his mind a single day of his long life.
