Poetry

Canada Liminal
By Lynne Pearl
This is the story of homelessness, crossing continents and wandering in search of a place to stay where friends will take you in and what one sees on the way. Beginning in Ottawa, travelling Quebec and New Brunswick, arriving in England to a Devon landscape, moving through fall, winter and spring.

Influenced by Kerouac, himself a Quebecois, this is a story in verse, a travelogue crossing continents, boarding greyhound buses, a journal of travels over a period of two years, writing poetry on the run, place by place. This a story of how one leaves and where one goes.

Fantasy

Thiel book 2: Remaining Still
By Lynne Pearl
Thiel finds himself in a new community that is self-founding, a collection of those who have run from society, unwanted, feared and fearing, needing to find themselves and survive alone, scapegoats from their homelands, but together finding their feet over time.

They trade and pursue a way of life that is both ancient and very modern, asking their questions together. Here Thiel, the outcast, meets:
Mr Endicott and Mr Dickens, store keepers
Achern, Thiel's teacher
Rurn, the village leader
Achern’s noble dog

Leaving his silence behind, Thiel is apprenticed to ancient ways.
