Orfeo a “book for dudes”

“The First Day of the Rest of Your Life | Books for Dudes,” a short review by Douglas Lord, Library Journal, February 4, 2014.

 VERDICT Powers skillfully weaves together and makes understandable two fields that get pretty far up their own asses in terms of complex, theoretical impracticality. For a book with such an upsetting premise—on so many levels—this is a soothing, evocative read in which characters inhabit intellects and ideas as much as they do the earth. It’s a wild, imaginative read for dudes looking to eclipse car chases/explosions/WWII history.
