Lasch-Quinn’s Review of David Stuttard’s ‘Phoenix’ Published in LA Review of Books

"Even if "Phoenix were merely a retelling of a familiar tale, its well-hewn narrative would still have much appeal," writes Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn, professor of history. "The story is epic. But it does more by giving us an interpretation we should consider, both as a warning and a source of hope."
