Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Tania Pryputniewicz has captured, with exquisite timing, eye and taste, the iconic power of our great archetypes, be they ancient or contemporary. Time spent with her work is always enriching. --Persia Woolley, author of The Guinevere Trilogy

In November Butterfly, the lyrical I looks into the mirror to find a different face with each pass. In this way, Pryputniewicz maintains the intimacy of the poetic I while expanding the personal lyric to a global resonance. As Ophelia, Jeanne d'Arc, Nefertiti, Amelia, Lady Diana, Marilyn and Sylvia come to reflect, we too find ourselves dissolving into the mirror...Pryputniewicz threads the narratives of multitudes into the singular I; with her gift of deep empathy, imagination, and lyricism, she gives readers the chance to live again and again and again.--Nicelle Davis, author of Becoming Judas

Reading, we enter a world in which Guinevere loves and does not love; we glimpse her as a girl wearing "pale slippers like falcon hoods / so lethal, so light." Later, she is a woman, shimmering, conflicted, drawn to a great, obliterating love...What does it mean to love, deeply, passionately, and in ways that will make it impossible to return to the life one was living before? What does it mean to link the great streaming magic of the everyday--to a real day? Divination and sacrifice offer us a way through. Pryputniewicz does not flinch from the challenges of the labyrinth--pathways that might lead equally, or randomly, to betrayal or desire. "So easy to muck the translation," she writes, "no common language--that gap between the self one loves and the self one fears." Her book gives us some courage--as we read and breathe that gap--to return what we find there to our own shattered and shattering, quotidian and startling lives. --Bhanu Kapil, author of The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers
