Praise for Deep River Night:
“Patrick Lane is one of the finest writers I know.” —David Adams Richards, author of Principles to Live By
“In a novel that journeys from wartime Europe and China to the remote interior of B.C., Patrick Lane offers us a wise, profound meditation on loss, longing, and the struggle for redemption. It is a work of art in which every sentence sings, revealing love and beauty hidden in unexpected lives and places. Deep River Night is a wonder.” —Guy Vanderhaeghe, author of Daddy Lenin and Other Stories
“The power of Patrick Lane’s prose springs from lived experience, shaped and tempered by the astonishing skill acquired through a lifetime in poetry. Lane has history with this world, these men—the kind of history that sticks in the mind’s eye—and he lays bare the inner workings of a broken mind, sheltering against the unbearable past and bombarded by it anyway. This a mourning book, elegiac, bloody, all fire and ashes, but taking great care for what gentleness may be left in the world.” —Marina Endicott, author of Close to Hugh
“Ablaze with a savage compassion, Deep River Night is a vast, sweeping novel of war, loss, violence, and forgiveness. This is Patrick Lane’s song of experience, written in a prose of shadow and light, exquisite as an ink painting, exploring the ways the past will not leave us alone. It is a gorgeous, furious achievement, a work of art of the highest order.” —Steven Price, author of By Gaslight
“It’s a book that touches on greed, power, destruction, responsibility, loss. . . . But, in the end, Deep River Night is a novel that shows that, even amid the darkness, there can still be a little light.” —Vancouver Sun
“Deep River Night doesn’t shy away from brutality, but it’s nevertheless a delicate piece of fiction, organized around states of psychological as well as physical fragility. . . . It’s the author’s command of language—the subordination of plot to poetry, in a way that doesn’t slow the one or hyperbolize the other—that holds the massive enterprise together." —Quill and Quire
