In the early '90s, Lorraine Gane's fiancé was diagnosed with inoperable cancer, dying nine months later during a bone marrow operation in New York City. This first collection of poems chronicles her journey through doctor offices and hospitals, but also reveals through dreams and monologue a deeper response to the death and its aftermath. Her intense, sometimes stark, but consistently sharp voice moves the text through an intimate story of love, loss and renewal. In a series of linked prose poems using elements from ancient myth ("Descent: Crossing the Dream"), she takes the reader into a archetypal world of grief and dissolution, exploring territory rarely attempted in poetic narrative. The final sequences show a fine lyrical sensibility in which Gane's loss is transcended into such a state of grace "where nothing matters but the heart that continues its wild beat searching for the skull of its birth." The result is a powerful memorial that helps us navigate our own losses and the deeper dimensions beyond our pain and mortality.
About the Author:
Lorraine Gane was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario, and grew up in Toronto. In the mid '70s, she graduated from Carleton University's Honours Journalism Program, then worked as a full-time writer and editor for major Canadian newspapers and magazines until 1989, when she began freelancing. In the early '90s, she also started teaching writing at universities and colleges such as Ryerson, McMaster and Georgian, as well as conducting her own private workshops. Selections from Lorraine's first poetry book, Even the Slightest Touch Thunders on My Skin (Black Moss Press, 2002), were shortlisted for the Canadian Literary Awards in 1997 and the League of Canadian Poets chapbook contest. Among her publications since moving to Salt Spring Island, B.C., are three chapbooks (Earthlight, The Phantom Orchid, and Beauty and Beyond: Songs of Small Mercies) and another volume of poems, The Blue Halo (Leaf Press, 2014). Lorraine is now working on a memoir and completing a book about writing. She mentors writers through online courses, consultations, workshops, and manuscript editing. www.lorrainegane.com.
