Ivan E. Coyote is a master storyteller and performer; their beautiful, funny stories about growing up queer in the Canadian north and living out loud on Canada's west coast have attracted big audiences, whether gay, straight, trans, or otherwise. In their passionate and humorous new collection, Ivan takes readers on an intimate journey, both literal and figurative, through the experiences of their life: from their year spent in eastern Canada, to their return to the west coast, to travels in between. Whether discussing the politics of being butch with a pet lapdog, befriending an effeminate young man at a gay camp, or revisiting a forty-year-old heartbreak around her grandmother's kitchen table, Ivan traverses love, gender, and identity with a wistful, perceptive eye and a warmth that's as embracing and powerful as Ivan themself.

The newest collection of short stories by queer Canadian storyteller Ivan E. Coyote is by turns touching, heartbreaking, and heartening. Coyote's signature autobiographical voice deftly weaves simple and powerful tales of family and loss, of being 'other' in small communities, and of her life as a storyteller and teacher. There are more than a few gems in this book and it is great reading for anyone interested in modern Canadian stories

The influence of Ivan's amazing live storytelling comes through in this collection! Possibly my and my mother's favourite!

Ivan E. Coyote is a wicked storyteller - after Shelagh Rogers from the Next Chapter recommended it, I was will to give it a try. A short sweet book of glimpses into the storyteller's life, it is definitely worth a read.

The short stories are only 1 or 2 pages long, so good to do one in quick 3 minute read. Fantastically surprising. I am very motivated to go and see her storytell live.
