2017 WAS A MAJOR YEAR FOR EDEN: Shortlisted for the Giller Prize and Winner of the Writers’ Trust of Canada Fellowship
UNFORGETTABLE PROTAGONIST: Jared is hilarious and heartbreaking, a combo of Holden Caulfield, Harry Potter and something entirely his own.
HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SEQUEL: Son of a Trickster fans are eager to find out what’s next for Jared.
THE BEST LAUGH IN CANADA: With all the Giller coverage on TV and radio, everyone now knows that Eden is the hands-down winner in this category.
INDIGENOUS VOICE: Eden’s extra gift to her readers is the Haisla/Heiltsuk “kitchen table” trickster stories she’s exploring in this trilogy.
“The book is full of light and love. Robinson has a loopy and wonderful sense of humour, expressed not just by her trademark laughter but her delightful author’s bios.” —The Globe and Mail
“Robinson balances realist, coming-of-age subject matter against a supernatural horror-fantasy plot with a comic tone…. Robinson understands, like few writers do, how comedy (when committed to fully) can enhance and deepen unfunny emotions such as horror, sadness and pain.” —Winnipeg Free Press
“Canadian Haisla/Heiltsuk writer Eden Robinson has delivered the second in her Trickster trilogy—the first installment, Son of a Trickster, was shortlisted for the Giller Prize. Trickster Drift is even better. It’s an enlightening, entertaining and very funny novel.” —NOW Magazine
“Robinson handles the new instalment of Jared’s story with ease and grace, her trademark good humour and often-disturbing imagination in equal display. Trickster Drift unfolds with the tempo of a literary realist novel, unfolding to include multiple facets of the urban indigenous experience while continuing to incorporate mysteries from other worlds. …The third novel can’t come soon enough.” —Toronto Star
“Riveting sequel…. Robinson has created a smart, funny and very likeable character in Jared and the reader will yearn for his success and fear for him as the evitable pull to embrace his power is realized.” —Pique (Whistler, BC)
“Straddles the line between violent trauma and humour and tenderness so gracefully…. [Robinson] expresses the internal compass of someone’s mind in such a real way.” —National Observer (interview)
“If you liked Jared in the first book, you will love him in this one.” —Greater Victoria Public Library
“The mix of sharp comedy, quick character sketches, and unsettling horror is note-perfect.” —Quill & Quire
PRAISE FOR SON OF A TRICKSTER, FIRST OF THE TRICKSTER TRILOGY:
Shortlisted for the Sunburst Award (Adult Category) 
Finalist for the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize 
Nominated for the Ontario Library Association’s Evergreen Award 
Shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize 
“A novel that shimmers with magic and vitality, featuring a compelling narrator, somewhere between Holden Caulfield and Harry Potter. Just when you think Jared’s teenage journey couldn’t be more grounded in gritty, grinding reality, his addled perceptions take us into a realm beyond his small town life, somewhere both seductive and dangerous. Energetic, often darkly funny, sometimes poignant, this is a book that will resonate long after the reader has devoured the final page.” —2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize jury (André Alexis, Anita Rau Badami, Lynn Coady and Richard Beard)
“Eden Robinson at her untidy best.” —The Globe and Mail
“Bursting with glee, exuberance, and wit…. This trilogy could shape up to be the new Canadian canon in the making.” —Literary Review of Canada
