House of Names - Colm Tóibín

I saw, as I held this small girl’s hand, the possibility of a bloodless future for us. It might be easy if Aegisthus learned to trust me. Perhaps the worst was over. Soon, it would all seem right. Soon, I would make Aegisthus believe that he could have what he wanted.

I just finished the first part - Clytemnestra's story - and loved it. Also, as Titus Andronicus is clearly still on my mind, I cannot  help but see certain parallels, not just in terms of tales of violence, deceit, and revenge, but also in character study. At least between Clytemnestra and Tamora. Anyway, onwards to see what Orestes' story brings.
