About this title

Synopsis:

In November 1979, an Air New Zealand sightseeing flight carrying 257 souls took off from Auckland to view the wonders of Antarctica. The excursion should have taken 11luxurious hours. When the flight was 90 minutes late in returning, the airline realized something had gone terribly wrong. 
On that missing DC10 was a friend of the author.
Told in fractured memories, images and heartbreaking poetry, this is the story of a time and a place. This is New York City at the end of a decade. It is also the story of friendship and loss, of memory and forgetfulness. It is the story of public mourning and private sorrow. Of corporate responsibility and individual integrity. Of bleakness and hope. Erebus, in Greek mythology the first realm of the underworld through which the dead must pass, is both an adventure tale and a classical tragedy, and it is as relevant today as ever before. It is a story full of heart--and teeth. As harrowing as Erebus can be at times, so too is it staggeringly beautiful. As such, this story could only be told in the hybrid form the author has chosen--a mix of prose, poetry, images, facts and figures. All the devices guide the reader through the story like Virgil led Dante, forcing one to pause here, linger there, and skid through another section One experiences language when reading Summer's book rather than simply gathers information from it. For those afraid of poetry, this is an almost effortless but stunning read. 

From the Back Cover:

"I don't even know what to call Jane Summer's astounding Erebus-it's that gorgeous, that transcendent, except to say that with this love-letter/elegy/anti-elegy about a real friend in a world of counterfeits, she has invented a kind of poetry that is anxious and wild and completely unexpected. The book is hybrid in structure-with citations and photos and its scrap from a musical score-but it also represents the hybrid nature of our collective psyche: how we remember; why we forget, and, most tenderly, how we can live in the past not as ghosts in regret but as preservationists-of which Summer is one-who can fully inhabit the present and the past at the same time. I was in constant awe at Erebus's sheer originality. I felt like I was reading a book about a new way to tell time." - Michael Klein, author of When I Was a Twin
