Thomas King: au nom des siens | Nathalie Collard | Entrevues

Thomas King: au nom des siens | Nathalie Collard | Entrevues | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Figure incontournable de la littérature canadienne, Thomas King n'est peut-être pas une vedette au Québec, mais c'est une icône dans le reste du Canada. Son essai L'Indien malcommode est sur la liste de tous ceux qui souhaitent mieux comprendre la question autochtone et son dernier roman, In the Back of the Turtle, a remporté le prix du Gouverneur général. Avec un humour parfois cinglant, Thomas King nous rappelle que l'Indien d'aujourd'hui n'a plus grand-chose à voir avec l'Indien des légendes. Rencontre avec celui qui parle «au nom des siens».

CM Magazine: The Missing.

CM Magazine: The Missing. | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
"For a book that’s only 185 pages long, Melanie Florence has managed to pack a great many issues into The Missing: the numerous unsolved cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and the pain that it causes to those close to them, sexual abuse within families, a dysfunctional foster-care system, relationship violence, high school homophobia, and the impact of racial stereotyping. It’s hard to present all of this in an accessible manner for a young adult readership, but the book really succeeds."
