In Ancient Greece, a skilled marble sculptor has been blessed by a goddess who has given his masterpiece — the most beautiful woman the town has ever seen — the gift of life. Now his wife, Galatea is expected to be obedience and humility personified, but it is not long before she learns to use her beauty as a form of manipulation.
In a desperate bid by her obsessive husband to keep her under control, she is locked away under the constant supervision of doctors and nurses. But with a daughter to rescue, she is determined to break free, whatever the cost…
From the Orange Prize-winning author of The Song of Achilles, this short story is a dazzling retelling of the myth of Galatea.

    He frowned, pointing. “What is that?”
    I looked down at my belly and saw the faint silvery tracks on my skin, caught in the light.
    “My love, it is the sign of our child. Where the belly stretched.”
    He stared. “How long have they been there?”
    “Since she was born.” Ten years ago now.
    “They are ugly,” he said.
    “I’m so sorry, my love. It is the same for all women.”
