evaluate integral or state that it is diverges

integral -oo, -2 [2/(x^2-1)] dx

-----------------------------------
integral -oo, -2 [2/(x^2-1)] dx
Through partial fractions, I came up with lim [ln(x-1)-ln(x+1)] b, -2
b->-oo
I get (ln(3)-0)-(oo-oo)). The answer in the back of the book is ln(3). What am I doing wrong?
