Perseus (2010)
by Richard Matturro, B.A. '68, M.A. '69, Ph.D. '73

Richard Matturro, B.A. '68, M.A. '69, Ph.D. '73, has published his fourth novel, Perseus, with 24 original drawings by Mary Trevor Thomas, M.L.S. '97. In this offbeat take on the classical myth, Perseus bungles his way into a heroic adventure with Andromeda, a highly opinionated young damsel in distress. A sexy mom, Danae, and a mischievous Hermes contribute as myth crashes into reality. Matturro, after 16 years at the Albany Times Union, now teaches in UAlbany’s English department.
