Written in the form of a memoir, Daedalus Falling is the 'autobiography' of Daedalus, the 'first maker' of ancient Greek myth - the first master craftsman, the first inventor of ingenious devices, the first man to create monumental sculpture, the first man to fly, the chief architect to the legendary King Minos of Crete and the builder of the labyrinth in which Minos housed the Minotaur. Imagining that this mythical 'Leonardo' was in fact the architect of the Palace of Minos at Knossos, this story is set in the middle of the second millenium B.C., fusing legend and myth with what archeologists know and what they surmise about the pre-historic Mediterranean world.
