"A memorable literary achievement. ...] Readers of literary fiction and classical literature will find much to wrestle with here." - Booklife Review

Giovanni Alberto is in Hell. His hometown of Jupiter, Florida is as close to paradise as any place on Earth, but perception is reality - or, in Giovanni's case, perception is surreality. On Halloween, as nightmarish visions of sin and vice come to life around him, Giovanni sets off on a journey of self discovery.

Singular and surprising in its form, Carney's Jupiter tells a tale of contemporary American society using all the tropes of Ancient Greece and Rome. It is a slice-of-life story of friends, theater, loneliness, and lost love with an eye for allusive detail and eagerness to experiment with pre-novel forms.
