Kiss of the Fur Queen by Tomson Highway

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.

  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.
