Kiss of the Fur QueenKiss of the Fur Queen by Tomson Highway

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m not sure why I never read this book when it first came out, but I just found it this year. It is an incredibly moving story of what it was like to attend a residential school. More importantly, it made me feel much more in touch with the complicated issues surrounding native Canadians and the displacement of their culture. A must read for Can Lit fans. This book would be an excellent complement to a reading of The Rez Sisters, also by Tomson Highway.

One thought on “Kiss of the Fur Queen by Tomson Highway

  1. This is one of few books with haunting, powerful language. I hear lines whispered to me like mantras. A book I offer students along with, read slowly, aloud and savour. This one stays.
