Hector Ashton staggers out of the St. Boniface Hospital psych ward and falls into the Red river. In his delusional state he thinks that he is Odysseus and has been swept into the river Styx. By the time Hector manages to struggle out of the river, he has washed up in the club district of Winnipeg and believes he is now deep in the Underworld. Hector will have to face the trials that Odysseus himself faced on his journey as he makes his way back to sanity, his home and family.
UNDERWORLD unites Lovern Kindzierski and GMB Chomichuk, two of Winnipeg's most successful creative minds for the first time, in a book that weaves a tale through the streets of their city, the mind of Hector and Homer's mythical epic.
