Ten Canadian Writers in Context

posted by kitdobson June 28, 2016

9781772121414-1I’m very glad to have had the opportunity to contribute to the edited collection Ten Canadian Writers in Context, edited by Marie Carrière, Curtis Gillespie, and Jason Purcell and published by the University of Alberta Press. My contribution to this volume is a discussion and analysis of Eden Robinson’s book The Sasquatch at Home, originally delivered as the Kreisel Lecture at the University of Alberta. I’m a long-standing admirer of Robinson’s work and have had the chance to write about her fiction previously, so this was a very welcome piece for me to write. Robinson continues to surprise and impress me for the ways in which she keenly analyzes colonial cultures (and colonial literary expectations), and for how neatly she manages not to defer to either while writing about and honouring her territory and people. Thank you to the editors!
