Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Stormy Weather is a lament in the aftermath of a failed relationship - twelve prose poems or "foursomes" working in a field of emotional turbulence with humour and curiosity. Each of the book's twelve sections fall into four paragraphs, and four companion quotations divide the sections; hence the subtitle, "foursomes," a term rassled away from the game of golf. The author, literary luminary Stan Dragland, confesses himself surprised at the diversity of fascinating material that gathers to his distress, some of it inappropriately funny. The heart falters but the world goes on. The heart falters but the mind leaps, from September 11, 2001 to Lear's Fool to The McGarrigle Hour to "Jack and the Beanstalk" to Mr. Iceberg to the dream of the blue dress to Paul Durcan's poetry to (disconnected) dry bones. The sentences, plain and protean, are answerable to all this bounce. -- "This book is like a fine old song that overflows with tenderness and hardwon wisdom. A true and perfect companion for every weather." - Elizabeth Hay
