Autorentext

Books in Canada has called Lorna Crozier one of the most original poets writing today. Her books have received every national accolade, including the prestigious General Governor's Award. Born in Saskatchewan, she presently teaches at the University of Victoria. She is the editor of the recent Desire in Seven Voices and, with Patrick Lane, the acclaimed poetry anthology Breathing Fire II: Canada's New Poets. Her most recent new collection is Whetstone (2005). The guest of poetry festivals all over the world, Patrick Lane has been called the best Canadian poet of his generation. In praising his selected poems, the Vancouver Sun described him as always walking "the thin ice where truth and terror meet with a kind of savage intuition." He is the author of more than twenty books of poetry, most recently Syllable of Stone (spring 2006) and Go Leaving Strange, one collection of short stories and one children's book, and is, with Lorna Crozier, the editor of Breathing Fire II: Canada's New Poets. His critically acclaimed 2004 memoir, There is a Season, won the inaugural B.C. Award for Canadian Non-Fiction; published in the US under the title What the Stones Remember, it was also nominated for the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Award.



Klappentext

Is addiction a disease, a sin, a sign of hypersensitivity, a personal failing, or a unique resource for the creative mind? However it is defined, addiction can have devastating consequences, often shattering lives, sundering families, causing impoverishment, and even triggering suicide. Yet it can also be a source of inspiration. In these frank essays, leading American and Canadian writers explore their surprisingly diverse personal experiences with this complex phenomenon, candidly recounting what happened when alcohol, heroin, smoking, food, gambling, or sex - sometimes in combination - took over their lives.
