Boston Globe review of Orfeo

A review of Orfeo, by  Adam Kirsch, Boston Globe, January 25, 2014.


An orpheus enchanting the animals

Not until the novel’s last pages do biology and music, past and present, come together in a clever, explosive resolution…. It is Powers’s earnest concern with what it means to be an artist and his interrogation of the price we pay for art, that sustains Orfeo.
