The Exhibition of Persephone Q by Jessi Jezewska Stevens


This book is the literary equivalent of a long walk alone at twilight. Percy contemplates pregnancy, technology, marriage, art, identity, and living in a newly post-9/11 New York City. Threaded through all of this is an unnerving mystery: Who sent her the photographs from her ex-fiance’s upcoming art exhibit? And why can’t anyone else see that the woman in the photos is her? This is a poignant book for anyone who wonders about their place in the world or sometimes feels a little lost.
