Orfeo review in ABR

“Finisterre,” review of Orfeo by Stephen J. Burn, American Book Review, Volume 35, Number 4, May/June 2014.

Along the way there are plenty of signature Powers moments to enjoy: virtuoso reflections on music…, sudden parallactic jumps…, and a vertiginous shift in perspective at the novel’s end…. What’s remarkable about the music of a Powers novel is the way that it constantly shuttles between different intellectual registers.
