Under the visible life by Kim Echlin( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fatherless Katherine carries the stigma of her mixed-race background through an era that is hostile to her and all she represents. It is only through music that she finds the freedom to temporarily escape and dream of a better life for herself, nurturing this hard-won refuge throughout the vagaries of unexpected motherhood and an absent husband, and relying on her talent to build a future for her family. Orphaned Mahsa also grows up in the shadow of loss, sent to relatives in Pakistan after the death of her parents. Struggling to break free, she escapes to Montreal, leaving behind her first love, Kamal. But the threads of her past are not so easily severed, and she finds herself forced into an arranged marriage. For Mahsa, too, music becomes her solace and allows her to escape from her oppressive circumstances. When Katherine and Mahsa meet, they find in each other a kindred spirit as well as a musical equal, and their lives are changed irrevocably. Together, they inspire and support one another, fusing together their cultures, their joys, and their losses, just as they collaborate musically in the language of free-form, improvisational jazz."--
Elizabeth Smart : a fugue essay on women and creativity by Kim Echlin( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elizabeth Smart, author of the classic By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept, has long been seen as a woman determined by "Romantic" love. In this new look at her life, Kim Echlin shows that another - powerful - source of her creativity was rooted in her fearless exploration of the female body and psyche - as daughter, lover of men and women, an single mother raising four children fathered by a British poet." "Women's creativity and relationships are the preoccupation of Elizabeth Smart's Writing. Echlin shows how Elizabeth Smart's determined embrace of her own unconventional experience in her art belongs to a literary tradition of writers who create female characters with a will toward individuality. To the last pages of Elizabeth Smart's life-long diaries, she never stopped challenging herself to stop doubting, to live and speak her truth, even though it put her on the margins throughout her life." "Echlin brings new material to bear on this reflection, including over one hundred interviews and a collection of never before published letters in which Smart reflects on birth, childrearing, and female creativity."--Jacket

Inanna : a new English version by Kim Echlin( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'A picture of this extraordinary figure has slowly begun to emerge through the painstaking work of these dedicated scholars: Inanna the creator, Inanna the destroyer, the lover, the warrior and friend. Inanna is original, and her stories have much to teach a contemporary readership about love, power, independence and compassion."
Inanna : mito de la cultura Sumeria by Kim Echlin( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inanna, a goddess of ancient Mesopotamia, was worshipped around 1800 BCE by our ancestors in the land that is now modern-day Iraq. But who was she? Who were her followers? And what did her stories mean for their lives? Lost for millennia, Inanna's stories were buried and forgotten, unearthed by archaeologists only recently, around the turn of the 19th century. Their translation has been a remarkable work of collaboration by scholars from disparate parts of the globe, as fragments of stone tablets were pieced together and the symbols on them recorded, transliterated, and interpreted. And although we still know relatively little about this ancient time, a picture of this extraordinary figure has slowly begun to emerge, through the painstaking work of these dedicated scholars: Inanna the creator, Inanna the destroyer; the leader, the warrior, the lover, the friend. Inanna was a guiding light for her followers, a commanding symbol of justice and honour, and her stories have much to teach a contemporary readership about love, power, independence, and compassion. Now, these stories are brought to vivid, visceral life by beloved Canadian author Kim Echlin, who brings her trademark passion and poet's sensibility to the translation of the Inanna myth. With a new introduction and comprehensive notes, this new English version renders Inanna's powerful story accessible and captivating for a new generation of eager readers
