About the book:

A compelling, lyric telling of the story of Oedipus and of "what happens outside the play," through the experience of the god who is its presiding oracle: Apollo, the god of poetry, music, and healing. Given the task of setting the Sophocles text to music, the god is woven reluctantly into its world of riddles, unanswered questions, partially disclosed objects, and ambiguous secondhand reports-a world where the gods, as much as humans, are subject to the binding claims of fate and necessity.
