A Painted Elephant tells a tale of love - unrequited, of course, like all the best stories. Our Juliet? A lonely Indian elephant, newly arrived at the Calgary Zoo from Holland, with a penchant for moonlight escapes. Her Romeo? The wooden Maytag Man statue on Calgary's 9th Street, with his sad eyes, his oaken thighs, his aloofness. Punished for her romantic escapades, our heroine is made to suffer a thirty-day quarantine during which she meditates on the true meaning of elephantine love. And finally, when she emerges from her solitary confinement - well, the outcome is as tragic as it is inspiring. This book, the first from Jill Hartman, is a tragi-comic narrative poem about pachyderm passion. Nina Simone, Pig Latin, German opera and a chorus of Canadian poets play in the background. Incense, speculaas cookies and cheap flowers scent the air. And goddesses, myrmidons and shipwrecks appear with some frequency. With fractured, playful language, the smart and funny A Painted Elephant trumpets an important new voice in Canadian poetry.

Beautifully written, moving, and very funny, "Love! Valour! Compassion!" gathers together eight gay men at the upstate New York summer house of a celebrated dancer-choreographer who fears he is losing his creativity...and possibly his lover. Infidelity, flirtations, soul-searching, AIDS, truth-telling, and skinny-dipping mix monumental questions about life and death with a wacky dress rehearsal for "Swan Lake" performed in drag. The result is a cross between a gay "Big Chill" and Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard." To read it is to join in a dance of life.
