**From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Overstory, an emotionally charged novel inspired by the myth of Orpheus.

''Bravo, Richard Powers, for hitting so many high notes with Orfeo and contributing to the fraction of books that really matter.'' —Heller McAlpin, NPR**

In Orfeo, composer Peter Els opens the door one evening to find the police on his doorstep. His home microbiology lab—the latest experiment in his lifelong attempt to find music in surprising patterns—has aroused the suspicions of Homeland Security. Panicked by the raid, Els turns fugitive and hatches a plan to transform this disastrous collision with the security state into an unforgettable work of art that will reawaken its audience to the sounds all around it.


Orfeo benefits from the deep sympathy Powers seems to feel for the brilliant and troubled protagonist he has created...[It] establishes beyond any doubt that the novel is very much alive. -- Troy Jollimore - Chicago Tribune Orfeo is that rare novel truly deserving of the label 'lyrical'...Powers offers a profound story whose delights are many and lasting. -- Harvey Freedenberg - Minneapolis Star Tribune One long express-train ride to the gorgeous. And the scenery is as sublime as ever. -- Laura Miller - Salon Part of the fun of reading [Powers] is to see how he wriggles out of his own snares. But a greater thrill is to join with him in untangling the most urgent and confounding puzzles of our age. -- Nathaniel Rich - New York Times Book Review For sheer bravado in constructing sentences, few authors of contemporary fiction can surpass Powers. -- Ted Gioia - San Francisco Chronicle Of novelists in Powers's generation with whom he is often compared-Franzen, Vollmann, Wallace-none equals Powers's combination of consistent production, intellectual range, formal ingenuity, and emotional effect. -- Tom LeClair - Christian Science Monitor Magnificent and moving. -- David Ulin - Los Angeles Times
