Averno, a crater lake in southern Italy, was for the Romans the entrance to the underworld, both gateway and impassable barrier between the living and the dead. This collection shows Averno as the only source of heat and light in a world turned to icy winter. Both epic and intimate in scope, it explores the enduring drama of love and death.
