I cannot recommend this modern Orpheus and Eurydice strongly enough. The author defies expectation to bring together a story that feels more fairy tale than myth - magical, melancholy, and strangely intimate in its sense of loss, transformation, and friendship. The modern settings (Québec, Vermont, New York) feel both familiar and dislocated, the details making all the difference. To truly embrace the atmosphere, read it somewhere quiet.
