comedic retelling of Homer's Iliad from the point of view of the kidnapped Helen of Troy. after a casual fling with the Spartan queen, Prince Paris carries his lover off to the Trojan capital and soon discovers that Helen is more difficult than he had ever imagined-for example, she refuses to consume foods that begin with any letter other than Z. Meanwhile, the rescue expedition led by Helen's husband, Menelaus, runs into immediate difficulties when the Spartan king finds himself on the Pan-Hellenic do-not-sail list. . .
