Rate this:

Fantasies and meditations on friendship and on love: erotic, romantic, tormented, spurned, married, illicit, patriarchal, filial, professional, and shot-gun. On the love of men and women, and of women for women: as friends, as mothers, as daughters, as uncertain selves; intimate communion with women living, with their imagined pasts, and with the dead.

Acclaimed author of Rest Harrow and The Green Library, Janice Kulyk Keefer brings her passionate intelligencs to bear on the beauties and perplexities of these most perennial of human obsessions. The poems are notable for their alert, musical line as much as for their range and sophistication.

WINNER of the 1999 Canadian Authors Association Award for Poetry SHORTLISTED for the 1999 Pat Lowther Memorial Award for the Best Book of Poetry by a Canadian Woman (Published in 1998) -- sponsored by the League of Canadian Poets
