We Come from the Same Light
To read Danielle Fournier is to plunge into the centre of a woman's heart and body - a heart that continues to beat, to search and to hope spurred on by a sensual, desirable - and desiring - body. Not only physical and emotional, Fournier's pursuits are also geographical and linguistic as she travels across continents and languages encountering bleak landscapes brightened by desire and feminine kinship. Despite the journey's internal ruptures and emotional turmoil, we reach joy and the conclusion that We come from the same light.
