Among the Goddesses is a bold experiment. Magical, mystical, musical, it charts a woman's journey that reverses the journey of Odysseus. What is it to be aided by goddesses, if we are women? What is it to face death, and to cause death? How do we become ourselves? Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Innanna may be the mileposts of any woman's journey toward freedom.
