Kevin Canty tells a story based on a real incident that begins with a disastrous fire in an isolated silver-mining town in Idaho in the 1970s. Everyone in town had a friend, lover, brother, or a husband killed in the mine.The Underworld traces the lives of the handful of survivors and their loved ones--a young widow with twin children, a college student trying to make a life for himself in another town, a lifelong hard-rock miner--as they struggle to come to terms with the loss. It's a tough, hardworking, hard-drinking town, a town of prostitutes and priests and bar fights, but nobody is tough enough to get through this undamaged.This is a powerful and unforgettable tale about small-town lives and the healing power of love in the midst of suffering.
