GOYETTE, Sue. Outskirts. (London, Ontario): Brick Books, (2011). First Printing. Pp. (8),9-111,(1). 8vo, illustrated blue and grey card covers, dark grey lettering to front cover and spine. "Sue Goyette's 'outskirts' is a tour de force, a powerful diptych juxtaposing our rootedness in family love with a report from the precipice of planetary disintegration. Its originalitylies in Goyette's refusal of despair, her conviction that the connections among people, their conversation, curiosity, empathy and awe, can help us see a way forward. Her aim is to find energy in human love, a way to walk the darkness rather than hide from it. This book will name you and frighten you, make you laugh and arm you for what is to come." - from rear. Very good. Due to its small size, shipping charges should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 12.00
