Pressestimmen"The gods have risen to earth! Zucker's crisply intelligent, hauntingly sonorous treatment of the Persephone myth turns this ancient tale human, exploring the reaches of feeling, without losing any of the mystery of other worlds." - Cole Swensen, author of Such Rich Hour; "The state of Eating in the Underworld is (imagining) being dead so sensually and visually that one is seeing intensely being alive. The pleasure of it is there also, entered from its reverse side like Coeteau's mirror." - Leslie Scalapino, author of New Time
