The Music Gene

Sunday Book Review of Orfeo  in the New York Times, by Jim Holt, January 10, 2014.

“Powers is prodigiously talented…  He writes lyrical prose, has a seductive sense of wonder and is an acute observer of social life…   I [was] unable to resist the emotional pull of Orfeo…  I [picked] it up eagerly each day and [found] myself moist-eyed when I came to its last pages… Unbearably poignant.”
