Synopsis: Poetry. Book + CD. Julia Older's obsession with the famous François Vase led to both the radio play and the book-length poem. The dramatic 25-century journey of the vase winds through a subterranean inferno of greed, passion, and terror. Twice it was smashed into 600-plus pieces, came unglued, and was puzzled together, each time with a piece missing. A third time during the 1966 Florence Flood a scientist intentionally broke the vase. He restored it with the missing piece, and at last it was whole. Older's book offers readers the entire fascinating story. The poem is illustrated with the vase figures from The Iliad and the book includes a backstory with Older's original translations of her research. The CD included with this book is a 33-minute radio drama introduced by a 10-minute director-author interview. The production was chosen by Radio Works' Best Independent Programs for syndication and broadcast to more than sixty public radio stations coast to coast.

About the Author: Award-winning author Julia Older has written poetry, essays, fiction, nonfiction, plays and literary translations. She is a recipient of numerous literary honors and has lived and worked in France, Italy, Mexico, and Brazil. She now writes in her studio in the foothills of Grand Monadnock, New Hampshire.
