Summary (From the publisher):

Reimagines the life of the Greek seer Teiresias. At the center of Steinbach's comic novel is an exploration of the meaning of time and the nature of identity. Having outlived everyone he ever knew, Teiresias looks back at the most significant episodes in his life - a visit to the Delphic oracle; mediating arguments between Zeus and Hera; his experiences as both man and woman, sighted and blind, prophet and slave - as he confronts the traveler Odysseus in the Underworld.
