Lost Cantos of the Ouroboros Caves by Maggie Schein. Forward by Pat Conroy.
"Her realm is timeless and enchanted and braided together with all the power and seduction of myth herself. Maggie Schein writes like a fallen angel, and I was there on the night of her birth."
- Pat Conroy
A collection of fables in the literary tradition of Italo Calvino (if he were a Taoist seeker), Lost Cantos
of the Ouroboros Caves brings together medicine men, monks, immortals, witches, seekers, souls in various stages of their cycles in and out of lived-life, and the occasional talking animal, all searching for the meaning of it all and each other.
Here, the well, the prairie, the mountains (the Ouroboros mountains, of course), the pond over which a swan swims continuously as she keeps vigil for the newly dead, each fable is a meditation on love, death, growth, pain, identity, self, spirit, and the natural world, as seen from the perspectives of the primal, the celestial, or the spiritual.
Fragile and beautifully strong, the Lost Cantos are tales and mythology for anyone seeking stories for a larger life.
Maggie was raised on stories that inspired, stories that healed; stories that troubled,
and a few so powerful
they lit up the darkness and cast intricate shadows in openings of glaring brightness.
