Book:Voyages in the underworld of Orpheus Black:2019 Book
Author: Sedgwick, Marcus
Author: Sedgwick, Julian
Author: Deacon, Alexis
Year: 2019
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Walker Books and Subsidiaries

Note: A lyrical and dreamlike story of two brothers in conflict amidst the devastation of WWII London. Harry Black wakes in hospital to learn that his brother Ellis has almost certainly been killed by a V2 rocket falling during a German air raid on London. In a state of wounded delirium, Harry's mind begins to blur the distinctions between the reality of the war-torn city, the fiction of his unpublished sci-fi novel and the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Driven by visions of Ellis still alive and a sense of poetic inevitability, Harry discharges himself from hospital and begins a search for his brother that will lead him deep into the city's Underworld.
