SUMMARY

"They say that an old man called Atlas holds up the sky,

and the adamantine lumps in his spine are mountains,

and the crystal blue pools of his eyes are oceans,

through which he stares at the nursery ceiling of space,

hoping eagles of solar fire will carry him home.”

In a town in the middle of nowhere, in the attic of his parents' house, a man convinced he was born with wings flees from the chaos outside and picks through his confused past.

Threnody for the Sky Children is a surreal modern fable that

draws inspiration from Ovid's epic poem Metamorphoses, and fuses mythology and music with a hint of zombie apocalypse.

“Artists like rap storyteller Jack Dean make us excited about what they’ll do next.”
