Summary
"Gilgamesh, the semidivine ruler of Uruk, is a larger-than-life bully and abuser of his people. In order to tame the arrogant king, the gods create the wild and handsome Enkidu. But after Enkidu and Gilgamesh become fast friends, they defy the gods in a series of outsized adventures that bring Gilgamesh face-to-face with both loss and death itself." "Hines energizes this timeless tale with vivid modern images, from the goddess Ishtar cracking the sound barrier to a battlefield nightmare of spectral snipers and exploding hand grenades, to the CAT scan image of a dying friend. The themes of love and friendship, grief, despair, and hope had their first great expression in this story."--Jacket
