Vancouver Sun"Patrick Lane's Go Leaving Strange (Harbour Publishing, 117 pages) is a watershed book for a poet whose work has been recognised with Canada's most prestigious literary awards. It's two sections, 'After' and 'The Addiction Poems' almost seem like books by different poets, but together they record the spirtual and artistic death and rebirth of a writer whose poetry has always had the impact of a switchblade pulled at a tea party...This new voice of Patrick Lane is more honest. It recognizes that the tragic and beautiful dilemma of being human is not something that can be summed up with a few clever lines or resolved by a quick sucker punch to the soul."
-John Moore, Vancouver Sun
