Under the covers of "Where the Nights Are Twice as Long: Love Letters of Canadian Poets," David Eso and Jeanette Lynes collect letters and epistolary poems frommore than 120Canadian poets, including Pauline Johnson, Malcolm Lowry, Louis Riel, Alden Nowlan, Anne Szumigalski, Leonard Cohen, John Barton, and Di Brandt, and many others, encompassing the breadth of this country's English literary history.

Presented in order not of the chronology of composition, but according to the poets' ages at the time of writing, the poems in the book comprise a single lifeline. The reader follows an amalgam of the Poet from the passionate intensity of youth, through the regrets and satisfactions of adulthood and middle age, and into the reflective wisdom of old age.

All the writings are about love, but love in a dizzying array of colours, shapes, and sizes. Deep, enduring love, unrequited love, passionate love, violent love. Here are odes and lyric ecstasies, tirades and tantrums, pastoral comforts and abject horrors all delivered with the vibrancy, wit, and erudition of our finest poets. "Where the Nights Are Twice as Long" is more than an anthology: it is an unforgettable journey into the long night of love."
