Combining an eye for the subtle with well-crafted dialogue, The Stillborn Lover brings to the forefront his unique, dramatic vision in an alluring tale of mystery, diplomacy and love."--Jacket

As the war edges closer, Mi fears her hard-drinking husband's philandering ways but finds herself magnetized by a dashing young R.C.A.F. pilot who handles a Spitfire and motorcycle with equal aplomb. In a time defined by laughter and loss, Mi and Graeme struggle with their own betrayal and loss and the delicate, almost invisible threads of hope that entwine them all."--Chapters.indigo.ca
The trials of Ezra Pound by Timothy Findley( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Trials of Ezra Pound is a stark portrayal of Ezra Pound at the end of his public life. Based upon the preliminary hearings of the trials held in Washington, D.C. in late 1945 and early 1946, Timothy Findley reveals what the original transcripts do not - Pound's emotionally charged interpretation of the events and his self-destruction. By letting Pound pace impatiently between time and place, Findley conducts a rare dramatic dance in The Trials of Ezra Pound - he takes the trial beyond one courtroom and into the realm of all humanity and it is here, in the light of Ezra Pound's harsh contradictions, that Findley asks the reader not to judge, but how to judge
