Love Outlandish

A love affair chronicled -- from obsession to heartbreak, foolhardiness to faith. In Love Outlandish, Barry Dempster undoes all the clichés that have barnacled our love lives and, with the zest and courage typical of his work, explores their torrents and eddies afresh. As in his previous books, Dempster responds to D.H. Lawrence's plea that we should discover and articulate what the heart really wants rather than some idealized version of it. Thoughtful, passionate, full of humour and self-aware wit, Love Outlandish delivers, again and again, the shock of recognition that permits us to laugh at, and with, the very emotions it probes. This is a book to relish for its energy and cherish for its wisdom. My favourite is the one where his love keeps trouncing distance even after she's gone, making harmonies out of death rattles. It's the crack in his heart where the melody lingers, the hiss of an old 45. How can I help but sing along, hard, hard song, unconditional illusion. -- from "Hard Song" "...Barry Dempster trains his poetic gaze on the lonely marrow inside love, and blows it wide open."-- Jeanette Lynes "Talk about luscious, limber language! The wonderful poems of Barry Dempster in Love Outlandish extend the possibilities of 'love lives' themselves -- what doesn't quite work out becomes, thanks to careful, original imagery and vibrant description, somehow as magnetic and translucent as what does..." -- Naomi Shihab Nye

Jesus did everything wrong: Poor judgment picking a team of disciples. Ministering to the wrong people. Angering the wrong people. Having outrageous expectations of his followers. Questionable teaching methods. Allowing others to have unrealistic opinions about his mission. A humiliating end followed by an improbable surprise ending. And then, somehow,
