Acclaimed author Thomas King is in fabulous, fantastical form in this bestselling short fiction collection.



A flock of Indians has just flown smack into the side of a Bay Street skyscraper. Again. It’s up to Bill and Rudy to tag the live ones, nurse them back to health at the shelter and release them back into the wild.

Acclaimed author Thomas King is in fabulous, fantastical form in this bestselling short fiction collection. In twenty tales, King pokes a sharp stick into the gears of the native myth-making machine, slyly exposing the raw underbelly of both historical and contemporary native-white relationships. Through the laughter, these stories shimmer brightly with the universal truths that unite us.
