Springtime 1985. The Night Stalker murders his way across Los Angeles, but the municipality of Willow Heights isn't too concerned. The 24/7 news coverage of rape and murder is boring compared with the news of fifteen year old Ricardo caught in flagrante delicto with a boy named Steve in the high school parking lot. One by one, relatives, friends, repudiate Ricardo. He'd never been one to feel alone or afraid or be the kind of person who backs down, but when his parents kick him out, Ricardo's not-so-peaceful life is shot to hell. Family is family--Ricardo is too stupid to believe anything otherwise. He means to go back home again, even if he has to bash on a tadpole loser classmate and his God-crazy aunt or be chummy with ruthless gangs. He might even be willing to shed some of his ugly prejudices. Even then, all his determination might not be nearly enough, not when the Night Stalker has dark plans in Willow Heights .... Solace is the first episode of a coming of age suspense serial, featuring amidst the 1980's AIDS scare, a macho gay boy, a tadpole straight boy, and their harrowing encounter with a serial killer.

In the tradition of Kathleen Norris, Terry Tempest Williams, and Thomas Merton, The Solace of Fierce Landscapes explores the impulse that has drawn seekers into the wilderness for centuries and offers eloquent testimony to the healing power of mountain silence and desert indifference. Interweaving a memoir of his mothers long struggle with Alzheimers and cancer, meditations on his own wilderness experience, and illuminating commentary on the Christian via negativa--a mystical tradition that seeks God in the silence beyond language--Lane rejects the easy affirmations of pop spirituality for the harsher but more profound truths that wilderness can teach us. There is an unaccountable solace that fierce landscapes offer to the soul. They heal, as well as mirror, the brokeness we find within. It is this apparent paradox that lies at the heart of this remarkable book: that inhuman landscapes should be the source of spiritual comfort. Lane shows that the very indifference of the wilderness can release us from the demands of the endlessly anxious ego, teach us to ignore the inessential in our own lives, and enable us to transcend the false self that is ever-obsessed with managing impressions. Drawing upon the wisdom of St. John of the Cross, Meister Eckhardt, Simone Weil, Edward Abbey, and many other Christian and non-Christian writers, Lane also demonstrates how those of us cut off from the wilderness might make some desert in our lives. Written with vivid intelligence, narrative ease, and a gracefulness that is itself a comfort, The Solace of Fierce Landscapes gives us not only a description but a performance of an ancient and increasingly relevant spiritual tradition.

The book is a collection of 40 poems dealing with the more difficult aspects of human life. It contains much of the personal philosophy that I have developed over the years. It is spiritual in nature, and though it contains a fair amount of religious symbolism, no specific creed is reflected.
