Summary (From the publisher):

Very loosely based on The Odyssey, The Suitors is a wildly inventive, skillfully crafted little novel. Focusing less on the Odysseus character (herein named Payne) than on the Penelope character (now Penny), it follows the eyebrow-raising exploits of Penny's much-maligned, ill-fated suitors. While Payne gallivants around, waging war and otherwise taking his time on the voyage home, Penny finds herself surrounded by a motley crew of ne'er-dowells eager for nothing but her attention. She, however, cannot be bothered with anything but her memories of Payne. That is, until the mysterious arrival of a man whose origins no one on the scene can quite divine. When Penny starts taking a shine to him, the tenuous calm on the home front quickly starts to unravel.
