Resource Publications, Wipf and Stock’s imprint, brought out this book of creative nonfiction, with a foreword by Patricia O’Donnell, author of Necessary Places, and head of the Creative writing BFA program at the University of Maine at Farmington.  The initial draft of Maine Metaphor was written at her suggestion 25+ years ago.

From Patricia’s introduction to Maine Metaphor:

She calls her book Maine Metaphor: The Green and Blue House, and the title is apt, for she has the artist’s way of seeing metaphorically. Dorman writes, “Writers are always turning over rocks, peering into holes, tickling the backs of someone’s knees looking for metaphors,” yet she doesn’t search hard for metaphors: she seems to have the kind of vision that sees metaphor everywhere in the natural world. As she struggles to see what Maine is, and to hear its speech, she can’t help but see it as a metaphor for the interior life, for the deepest part of her self.

Ready for order at bookstores and the publisher.  Also now on sale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble as ebook.
