REVIEWS FOR
ZEUS RISING

"Readers will enjoy Anastas’ irreverent take on mythology, his loving depiction of LA, and his subtle interrogation of the West’s democratic heritage."

"I liked the energy and vitality and the imaginative retelling of Greek history and myth. It is a fascinating premise and what makes it work is Zeus' voice which carries the narrative. His character is sustained and draws readers into the story."

-Dr. Gregory Jusdanis

Humanities Distinguished Professor, The Ohio State University

"Louis Anastas is a sensitive and lyrical writer who weaves seemingly inchoate themes into a richer and more intricate pattern. He's also fun to read."

-John Kapelos

Actor & musician, The Breakfast Club & Roxanne
