Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A master craftsman at work . . . In A Short History, we see King at work and at play in various narrative traditions: fable, tall tale, realistic story, magic-realist story. . . . Familiar and yet happily unpredictable." —Ken McGoogan, Globe and Mail

"Ultimately, A Short History of Indians in Canada can be read purely for its exuberance, storytelling, and wit, but there’s no reason for the reader to settle for charm and escapism when, with just a little digging, you can have so much more." —Toronto Star

"[Thomas King is] at his best writing serious comedy about subjects close to his heart. The truth about his stories is that they’ll leave you laughing, but they'll take a long time to leave you." —Vancouver Sun
