Geographies of a Lover

Geographies of a Lover is a poetry collection by Sarah de Leeuw.

Sarah de Leeuw

Sarah de Leeuw's Geographies of a Lover is a sexually charged travelogue of love, lust and loss. Drawing inspiration from such works as Pauline Réage's The Story of O and Marian Engel's Bear, de Leeuw's poetry uses the varied landscape of Canada — from the forests of North Vancouver through the Rocky Mountains, the prairies and all the way to the Maritimes — to map the highs and lows of an explicit and raw sexual journey, from earliest infatuation to insatiable obsession and beyond.
