Maggie Schein is a writer who wears her love of language on her sleeve. Her fables, told in dancing, almost musical prose, unveil myths that seem drawn from a time long before history began. Find a quiet place, sit back, and prepare to be dazzled.
A collection of fables in the literary tradition of Italo Calvino, Lost Cantos of the Ouroboros Caves brings together medicine men, monks, immortals, witches, seekers, souls in various stages of their cycles in and out of lived-life, and the occasional talking animal, all searching for the meaning of it all and each other.
Each fable is a meditation on love, death, growth, pain, identity, self, spirit, and the natural world, as seen from the perspectives of the primal, the celestial, or the spiritual. Fragile yet beautifully strong, Lost Cantos of the Ouroboros Caves is for anyone seeking stories for a larger life. –downpour.com
