Pursued By A Bear: Talks, Monologues and Tales by Daniel David Moses
Collection from the prize-winning First Nations dramatist and poet, 18 essays and talks exploring the nature of story telling, the possibilities of a “collective past,” tricksters, “medicine shows,” and those stalking ghosts who have pale faces.
"Moses’ voice is firm and assured, but oddly hard to define, combining a loose colloquial sprawl and a pared-down tenseness with a mythic imagination and an everyday chattiness. He writes in a world in which everything is not only possessed of consciousness, but seems engaged in thoughtful consideration of itself.”
—Margaret Helwig, Books in Canada
