(From the publisher):
A contemporary retelling of the tragic tale of Eurydice and Orpheus, with the porch as "a sort of stoa to Hades," Gordon's novel follows a woman's flight to her original rural community from her unfaithful husband and their home in New York City. Her flight takes her to the threshold of Hades - and home again, back to the fruitful tenstion of opposites, toward redemption.
Original title: The Women on the Porch
