KNOW THE NIGHT by Maria Mutch 

Maria Mutch is the author of Know the Night, a finalist for the Governor General's Literary Awards, and chosen by MacLean's Magazine as a "Best of 2014" and by as "A Memoir Too Powerful to Put Down." Her short fiction and essays have appeared in Poets & Writers, Guernica Magazine, and Literary Mama, among numerous other literary journals in Canada and the US. She lives in Rhode Island.


Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams, said, "Know the Night offers the magnificent vision of a mother's love--a love sculpted from jazz and ice and dreams; a love large enough to hold the darkness between midnight and dawn, large enough to hold multiple diagnoses and the vast margins of what they can't describe--large enough to hold a story of a polar explorer and his months alone in another kind of night. This memoir finds a candid, capacious language--always curious, often stunning--for the states of mystery and wonder at its core."
