Book of the Week: WHERE THE NIGHTS ARE TWICE AS LONG edited by David Eso and Jeannette Lynes

Is the love letter a lost art? Just in time for Valentine’s Day comes this collection of letters and epistolary poems from more than 120 Canadian poets including such luminaries as Leonard Cohen, Aldine Nowlan, Pauline Johnson, Anne Szumigalski and Di Brandt. It’s a book of love, and lust, for the ages – from the passionate, reckless love of youth to the quiet satisfactions, searing regrets and reflective wisdom of mature love. And who knows? This wide-ranging and colourful portrait of romance might even inspire you to pen your own perfect ode to love.
