Review of The Orenda by Joseph Boyden | Quill & Quire

"Now that The Orenda has arrived, it’s hard not to think of Joseph Boyden’s first two novels (Three Day Road and its Scotiabank Giller Prize–winning follow-up, Through Black Spruce) as preludes to this magnificent literary beast. It’s not just the historical sweep of the narrative or the juxtaposition of belief systems at the birth of the nation we now call Canada that lend this novel a sense of urgency and significance – and its literary blockbuster feel. (The Orenda will be this year’s The Book of Negroes, I suspect.) "

 

-Quill & Quire
