Orfeo in top 4 of Washington Independent Review of Books

Orfeo one of four favorites of 2014 in “4 Books That Stuck with Us,” by Katie Dvorak, Washington Independent Review of Books, January 1, 2015.

This profound, intelligent, and moving story of a man’s retrospective on his ambition, love of music, and failures at love is stretched over the taught frame of a plot driven, seemingly improbably, by bioterrorism accusations and the omniscience of a police state.  If that sounds like a lot to cram into one novel, it is — and Powers succeeds at every stroke.
