    Book Description From the internationally acclaimed author of The White Bone and The Romantic, a haunting and suspenseful novel of abduction and obsessive love
    Tapping into the fear that lies just below the surface of contemporary city life, Barbara Gowdy draws on her trademark empathy and precision to create a portrait of love at its most consuming and ambiguous and to uncover the volatile point at which desire gives way to the unthinkable. Customer Reviews: Makes you really think about the character's motives and actions This author seems to have a real way with characters. I found myself thinking hard about each one, trying to understand how their lives have influenced their actions. There is just the right amount of flashbacks, enough to make you see that each character has a whole backstory. I think quite a few more books could be written using this same set of people. One of the main characters is a very disturbing person who does very upsetting things, but it's to the author's credit that you are left feeling as if he has fought a fairly courageous battle to not make his life a total disaster. The only time the book dragged for me at all was during police procedural and searching parts, which seemed a bit textbook. But this isn't really a plot driven book. I read it frantically whenever I found a moment, and have been thinking about it ever since.

  • Jane Urquhart Barbara Gowdy was born in Windsor in 1950 but grew up in the Toronto suburb of Don Mills, having moved there with her family in 1954. After graduating from high school in the late 1960s, she studied at York University and the Royal Conservatory of Music. Before deciding to become a full-time writer in the early 1980s, Gowdy pursued several other career paths including musical theatre, the securities industry, and being an editor for the publisher Lester and Orpen Dennys. Since devoting herself to her writing, she has, from time to time, taught creative writing at Ryerson and the University of Toronto and has worked as an interviewer for the TVOntario program, Imprint. Though she has earned an international reputation for her uncanny ability to characters who are abnormal to the extreme while at the same time presenting them in a sympathetic and moving manner, her first novel was actually quite conventional. Published in 1988, Through the Green Valley is a historical novel that follows the struggle of an Irish peasant family who eventually move to America to escape the war and famine in their own country. It was not until the publication of

    15. Watershed Book Cafe - Response To Barbara Gowdy's The White Bone - A Novel
    Review of The White Bone by Linda Tiessen Wiebe.
    Response to Barbara Gowdy's The White Bone by Linda Tiessen Wiebe. In the bathtub, as I washed soap from my face, I suddenly imagined throwing back my trunk and spraying water on my grey wrinkled back. I had spent the morning finishing Barbara Gowdy's book The White Bone ; it wasn't hard imagining myself an elephant.
    And I think Gowdy would be pleased. In the tradition of Watership Down , she takes you to the alien plains of Africa through the eyes of elephants. To enter the elephants' world was a privilege. I've been fascinated by elephants for a while; they're so big and lumbering, homely yet majestic. Their sad eyes draw me. In The White Bone , they and their world came alive and I fell in love with them. God is referred to as The She, themselves as she-ones. Matriarchal and communal, the elephants live a rhythmed life between the rainy and dry seasons. They form a society together with other elephant families and other creatures. They have their own language (we are ignomiously referred to as hindleggers). Their keen intellect shows in their visionary ability; most herds have at least one "mind talker". They sing constantly, hymns praising the rains or bolstering courage.
    The life of one particular family, the She-S's, is revealed through the eyes of Mud and two of her friends. Mud, a twelve-year-old female who has just mated for the first time, is being honored for this event by receiving her adult name from her adoptive family. But she isn't quite ready to leave her adolescence and refuses to acknowledge her new name. Mud and her best friend Date Bed devise plots to outwit the intolerable old cows by starting their own herd. Date Bed is the true offspring of Mud's adoptive mother; they have been inseparable since childhood. Date Bed is a gatherer of knowledge, curious and always observing. Tall Time is an older male, who periodically visits the family because he has had a crush on Mud since she was two. He can't help his unnatural devotion and desire for Mud. He wants to mate for life with her because he feels she carries the image of the Divine She. He is called the Link Bull because he knows all the omens and hidden meanings to coincidences.

    We So Seldom Look on Love List Price: Price: You Save:
    Whether expounding upon the dilemma of a two-headed man who attempts to expunge his own pain, the shock of a woman who discovers she has married a transsexual, or the bizarre predictions of a female necrophile, these stories convince readers with incisive detail, only to disarm them suddenly with black humor. The title story of this collection has been made into the motion picture Kissed, which was a hit at the Toronto Film Festival. From the author of the blockbuster Mister Sandman comes a gathering of unusual characters captured in the outrageous and humorous situations for which Barbara Gowdy has become famous. Teasing the taboos, Gowdy creates a marriage dialogue between a woman and her transsexual fiancé, who she thought was a man, and litigation between Samuel and Simon who share the same two-headed body. She peoples her stories with Siamese twins, a necrophile, and a pathetically lonely exhibitionist. And she brilliantly illustrates how uncomfortably close a connection comedy has to human suffering. The title story has been adapted into a movie called "

    Book Review
    Barbara Gowdy has an utter affinity for the unconventional. In the title story of We So Seldom Look on Love, necrophilia is exquisite rather than execrable, and her wildly funnyand wildly affectingnovel Mister Sandman invites us into the hearts and minds of Toronto's least normal and most loving family. With The White Bone Gowdy continues her exploration of extraordinary lives, but this time human beings ("hindleggers") are on the periphery. And we're grateful when they're not around, since this gives her four-legged characterselephantsa chance to survive. The White Bone opens with five family trees. Gowdy's pachyderms include an orphaned visionary, She-Spurns (more familiarly known as Mud), and the "fine-scenter" She-Deflates, not to mention nurse cow She-Soothes and the bull Tall Time. (Though Gowdy's... Romantic

    May 2004
    From Publishers Weekly In her previous novels (The White Bone; Mr. Sandman; etc), Gowdy's imagination blazed new trails, melding bizarre characters into memorable situations. This novel is as beautifully written as its predecessors, but more traditional than the Canadian writer's usual fiction. She examines the mysteries of love and its absence in two damaged children whose adult lives remain shadowed by their early experiences. In the early 1960s in Toronto, when she is 10, narrator Louise Kirk falls in love with a new neighbor boy named Abelard, the adopted son of the Richter family. Louise's mother, a former beauty queen who said things like, "Nobody would believe you're my daughter," abandoned Louise and her passive father a year ago, and Louise prays that the Richters will adopt her, too. Louise has oceans of love to lavish and...
