Molly Divorced

by Damian Westfall

Molly Divorced Synopsis

Using the Medea tragedies of Euripides and Seneca, Damian Westfall creates a new novel, Molly Divorced. The novel is a minimalist dialogue depicting a post-modern Medea (Now Molly), whose husband, Jack, abandons her for a younger woman. Betrayed, wounded, and brimming with hate she sacrifices her love for her children and kills them because she knows that this will cause the deepest pain to her ex-husband. Westfall's debut novel, Molly Divorced, is a concise example of narrative language pared down to the minimum essentials. Standing on the shoulders of Beckett and Carver, Damian Westfall has reinvented the Medea myth in this new groundbreaking novel.
