"If, since Hemingway, the benchmark for complex short stories is their "iceberg"-quality--i.e. the fact that the largest part of what informs a complex and well-written story is actually hidden underneath the surface of what appears on the page -- then Mehlmann's stories easily reach this level of complexity. Her characters and conflicts have profound psychological depth, but only a fraction of that complexity is manifest on the surface, while underneath there is an entire world of what is displaced, repressed, "forgotten," dis-remembered and untold; with nuanced dialogues and roaring silences, this book will captivate and be of interest to all readers, regardless of their ethnicity, nation, gender or socio-cultural standing. Indigenous authors in Canada today are producing world literature that does what oral traditions and literature in any language have always done: teaching us who we are, who the others are, and how we must live as good human beings so that coming generations can also live meaningful lives on this planet." Dr. Hartmut Lutz, professor emeritus and former chair of American and Canadian Studies: Anglophone Literatures and Cultures of North America at the University of Greifswald, Germany. "The stories and memories contained in this book are honest, gritty, harsh, and uncensored. They depict a reality that needs to be told. It is about the resilience of a People, who have lived through racism, poverty, hatred and blame - but in the end - continue to build with unwavering pride." Carol Rose Daniels, author of Bearskin Diary
