Description

“a sort of Northern Gothic, with attitude.”

Four childhood friends come of age in this fabulously told tale of small-town life. Rita, Sage, Pearce and Eddie are discovering love with all its horror and beauty in an intolerant world that sets up ridiculous standards of normality and brutalizes those who don’t conform.

Contributor Notes

Author Lynnette D’anna grew up on the Canadian prairies. She is fond of cats, trees and large bodies of water. She has been writing stories all her life, and has published seven books of fiction.

Editorial Review

“Imagine the energy of early Marge Piercy novels linked to a much darker and more mature sense of the hidden rooms where desire, power, sexism and hallucinations intersect – a sort of Northern Gothic, with attitude.” Tom Sanborn, Xtra! West

“A complex web of relationships and sexual discovery, compelling in its drama, moving in its honesty, and satisfying in its outcome. Mystery, loss, love, desire … Rita, Sage, Eddie and Pearce are boldly coming of age in this compelling story about sexual awakening, growing up, and determining their places in the world. D'anna is able, quite radically, to locate the burning itch at the centre of young women's sexuality.” Books in Canada

"The sex scenes are what distinguish RagTimeBone. D’anna has a deep sense of what is both torrid and complex about coming of age, and an understanding of the fluidity of sexual allegiance. She is able to locate the burning itch at the centre of young women’s sexuality.” Lynn Crosbie, The Globe and Mail

"The sex scenes in Lynnette D'anna's novel, RagTimeBone, are not only steamy, they're visual and visceral. The astonishing thing is that they're written in such a sparse, economic style, that one wonders how so few words can create such graphic scenes." Ruth Raymond, Lies

"D'anna explores the nature of romantic love and all its horrors in a style that acknowledges the complexity of the issue, yet her writing is remarkably lean and sharp." Quill & Quire

“Author Lynnette D’anna has braided the lives of three women growing up in a small town into an intelligent, emotionally percussive and almost allegorical novel about love corrupted and love redeemed.” Prairie Fire Magazine
