Description - Orpheus Lost by Janette Turner Hospital

In this compelling reimagining of the Orpheus myth, Leela, a young mathematician, encounters gifted Australian musician Mishka performing in the subway. The connection is immediate; a steamy love affair ensues. Insulated by their love, the pair ignores the anxious urban landscape. But when Leela is picked up off the street and taken to an interrogation center and an explosion rocks the subway, the fabric of their bond-and their very identities-begins to unravel. Reading group guide included.

Buy Orpheus Lost by Janette Turner Hospital from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
