Ivan E. Coyote is a master storyteller; her beautiful, funny stories about growing up a lesbian butch in the Canadian north attract audiences both gay and straight. In her fifth collection, Ivan addresses issues of family, queer youth, and homophobia with a trenchant and wistful eye.
ALL of ivan's books/stories are just incredible! i had the chance to see her read twice last summer - she's an amazing and captivating storyteller who has the capability to not only bring her characters to life, but to also bring you into her stories. her writing is calming, sincere, poignant, and beautiful in its honest simplicity. she's one of my very favourite authors and i keep going back to her books (i own all of them) when i want something really good to read. definitely worth every penny!
