 About the Book 

I wake up and my head feels like a broken dog biscuit.So begins our descent into our 21st century Persephones world. In Greek myth Persephone was Queen of the Underworld, only, in Kiers story, that underworld is very much the world we know.MoreI wake up and my head feels like a broken dog biscuit.So begins our descent into our 21st century Persephones world. In Greek myth Persephone was Queen of the Underworld, only, in Kiers story, that underworld is very much the world we know.For hers is a world of casual drug use and even more casual sex. Text messages. Alcohol.And a custody battle with her erstwhile partner which threatens to tear her world apart.Mother Nature is the second novelette of the Classic Myths Reinvented series from White House Press. Taking as its inspiration the Greek myth of Persephone, James Henry Kiers highly-stylized piece is a triumph of modern, stream-of-consciousness narration, in the grand Scots manner of such luminaries as James Kelman and Irvine Welsh (The Book Shelf Reviews), and a remarkably heartfelt and inventive text (The Bar-Room Literery Critic).
