Cover Reveal: I Never Liked You Anyway by Jordan Kurella

Vernacular Books is excited to share the cover of Jordan Kurella’s novella I Never Liked You Anyway. Available for pre-order everywhere books are sold, I Never Liked You Anyway is the reimagined story of Eurydice and Orpheus.

“This novella grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. Like all great stories about death, it left me with some new ideas on what it can mean to be alive. Just as tragicomic as real life. I loved it.”

Kate Heartfield

In I Never Liked You Anyway, Eurydice is dead, and hell is a school. She has to learn Hauntings, Baking Disasters, Threads of Fate, and take all the other classes a newly dead soul needs to master before they’re ready for what comes next.

Still processing the disastrous relationship that sent her into the land of the dead almost as soon as she was married to Orpheus, the brilliant love of her life, Eurydice will tell you how Orpheus swept her off her feet, how their polyamorous group swept each other up in music and art and art theory and a life of creation and destruction. But, this isn’t their story. It’s Eurydice’s, and even though she’s failing all her classes and knows Orpheus is coming to get her out, she’s the only one who truly knows how the story of Orpheus and Eurydice ends.

“An inspired and clever retelling of one of favorite myths, with a modern touch that brings the dead to life again.”
