Sinopsis: When Lou travels to an island in northern Ontario one summer she is disconcerted to discover that the island's only occupant is a brown bear. As the summer progresses they become friends and eventually lovers and Lou discovers a sensuality and independent strength she has never known before.
From the Inside Flap:
After five years buried like a mole amid the decaying maps and manuscripts of an historical institute, Lou is given a welcome field assignment: to catalogue a nineteenth-century library, improbably located in an octagonal house on a remote island in northern Ontario. Eager to reconstruct the estate?s curious history, she is unprepared for her discovery that the island has one other inhabitant: a bear.
Lou?s imagination is soon overtaken by the estate?s historical occupants, whose fascination with bear lore becomes her own. Irresistibly, Lou is led along a path of emotional and sexual self-discovery, as she explores the limits of her own animal nature through her bizarre and healing relationship with the bear.
A daring and compelling novel, Marian Engel?s Bear won the Governor General?s Award for 1976.
