Comments Clea and Zeus Divorce

  • Myles

    I read Prager's short story collection A Visit from the Footbinder a couple years ago (a couple years ago? wow) and was impressed with her idiosyncratic take on modern feminism. Clea and Zeus Divorce concerns feminism to an extent, but adds cold war nuclear fear and white post-colonial angst as a backdrop to the novels primary conceit: a televised prime-time spectacle about the end of a marriage.Husband and wife Zeus and Clea are an internationally renowned performance institution.

    Inasmuch as a proudly random genre like postmodern fiction can be formulaic, "Clea & Zeus Divorce" is pure formula. Stick a romantic convetion (divorcing couple), a historic atrocity (European imperialism), and a modernist obsession (television) into one pot and you'll get a stew much like "Clea and Zeus Divorce."

More than that though I think it is about the losing of self and identity especially when the anchors that ground you - whether people or places - are ripped away. Who are you when your country is no longer there? When your mother is gone? Wha [...]

    Deeply ambivalent about this book. It has an interesting premise and has some wonderful little moments, but I fear it is less than the sum of its many parts. Liked it overall but probably would not read it again.
