McIntyre mingles a sense of drowning with a sense of dreaming, and explores the overriding impulse to submerge our sorrows with anger. “My mother died of cancer at age 45, leaving behind an angry teenager who would forever grapple with feelings of loss, grief and longing. She has and will continue to inform all my work. Behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin.”—Janet McIntyre
