Description of "The Deep North"

Fanny Howe's heroine, in this brilliant novel of an individual's search for identity, is born of a well-to-do Boston family. Disgusted with her upbringing, and desiring to be for once "on the right side of history", Gemma seeks to better know herself and the "real" world by entering a radically new life. Blessed by her mother's italian ancestry with dark, curling hair and Fanny Howe's heroine, in this brilliant novel of an individual's search for identity, is born of a well-to-do Boston family.

Disgusted with her upbringing, and desiring to be for once "on the right side of history", Gemma seeks to better know herself and the "real" world by entering a radically new life. Blessed by her mother's italian ancestry with dark, curling hair and olive complexion, Gemma begins to pass as a Black. Gradually, she dissociates herself from her white friends and family; and pursuing her passionate desire for justice, she loses her old identity.

As her old world passes beyond her reach and her new, self-made one begins to callapse, a further possibility arises, that may or may not be illusory. The Deep North evokes a time when the collapse of the old could bring freedom; Gemma's story reaffirms that choice and change are possible, and reminds us of how much they cost. In Fanny Howe's tragicomic vision, there are no easy answers, but the questions she poses, the dilemmas of her characters, are those of anyone struggling to transform a world of horrors into a liveable future.

She was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Her father was a lawyer and her mother, Mary Manning, was born in Dublin and wrote plays and acted for the Abbey Theatre before moving to the United States.

Her sister is the poet, Susan Howe and her daughter is the novelist, Danzy Senna[1] Howe is one of the most widely read of American experimental poets. Her books include: Selected Poems (2000) (shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry Prize), Forged (1999), Q (1998), One Crossed Out (1997), O'Clock (1995), The End (1992), and On the Ground (2004) (also shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry Prize).

Of her work, fellow poet Michael Palmer comments: Fanny Howe employs a sometimes fierce, always passionate, spareness in her lifelong parsing of the exchange between matter and spirit. Her work displays as well a political urgency, that is to say, a profound concern for social justice and for the soundness and fate of the polis, the "city on a hill". Writes Emerson, The poet is the sayer, the namer, and represents beauty.

Here's the luminous and incontrovertible proof. She is currently Professor Emerita of Writing and Literature at the University of California, San Diego.
