    I ve never read such an explosion of stories and poems as these Every single poem, every single story, I wanted to share and share with friends, family, strangers on the street I wanted to read them out loud and absorb them into me Each one carries emotions and senses that you can t always put your finger on, that make you want to re read them over and over When I finished this book, I considered just flipping back to the front and starting over again.

    Simpson uses fiction as a vehicle to tell the truth.And when fiction feels true, or real, it makes it all that much better Her short fiction has distinctive multiple voices but I can feel her author s touch in all of them and she makes me think about how I could be a better author or writer.Her work as a musician means that her poetry reads and sounds like music What I adore about her poetry is that it is not forced, it does not feel abstract in any way, I understand almost all of her poems whic [...]

    wow I loved this a refreshing read that somehow manages to punch with antagonistic force esp if you re a white reader listen to your discomfort but at the same time never dwells too long in self seriousness, lingering on the edges of self deprecation and honest self assessment tough to read in places to be honest many aggressive insights about settler colonialism and the ways sympathetic white liberals are the most deluded and passive aggressive of colonizers like indigenous narratives that are [...]

    I won this book through a giveaway I always strive to read diverse literature but I truly didn t know what to expect from this book Strong Unapologetic Honest Heartbreak Love Those are all words that vaguely encompass the many facets of this piece of written art I feel that I am left knowing so much about the life of the author as well as left with many questions While very short, the collection of songs and stories is powerful and vibrant and compelling I love that I felt very connected to the [...]

    This Accident of Being Lost is a collection of poetry from an Indigenous writer that delves into both spirituality and day to day themes It was a fascinating collection of techniques, with prose poems and lyrics intertwined to tell several related stories Will have to seek out of Simpson s work in the future

    Simultaneously hilarious, furious, and heart wrenching a collection that deserves to stand the test of time.

    There are eight new notifications from Signal, all from Niibish She just made me switch from imessage to threema to Signal because Edward Snowden tweeted that Signal is the safest texting app, mostly because the code is open source and has been independently verified I wonder if she knows what code and open source mean, but if anyone can be trusted about these things my money s on Snowden Also I have no idea why she cares about internet security, but she clearly does from Big Water iconic tbh wh [...]

    A mix of poems and stories, or really fragments of stories Short, sharp Colonization, human frailty and toughness, people doing the best they can in messed up, inspiring, loving relation Very good.

    I didn t get it I don t think I m artsy academic enough, so just not my thing

    This is a pretty different experience than other indigenous literature I ve read It s very funny, extremely contemporary in sensibility and form, and even futuristic Simpson s stories are a reflection of her nation s storytelling traditions, but are also a brand new invention of them in 2017 The stories describe the authenticity trap that indigenous people find themselves in, where they are condemned as inauthentic for living in the modern world, while carrying out traditional practices acquires [...]

    Flash stories, songs, poems, and fragments I can t really describe this book properly except to say it was beautiful and resonated deeply with me Truly a must for any Indigenous post colonial person.

    Nick
    I found this to be an intriguing little collection of poetry and micro stories Some of the texts in this collection are light and breezy, and some require multiple reads to get at the layers of their depth Some of the texts are too ambiguous, too random, or too full of terms I don t understand I m mostly speaking about Twitter hashtags for my taste though I see how they fit in the overall book A few are wonderful, then end oddly, as if they should have ended a few paragraphs or stanzas back I pr [...]

    amazing Everyone should read this collection of short stories

    Kristine
    Beautiful Painful Funny Angry So much emotion in one slim volume.

    Linor
    I wasn t sure what to expect in this book It is very slim, sort of like it could be a bunch of poems, but it is a series of stories, and poems, and even though it is a thin volume, it is packed with ideas It made me think a lot about what it means to reclaim land and self determination especially in an urban, populated context It is set in and around Toronto where I live and where so much of Indigenous people s history has been erased This book reminds people living here that Indigenous and in t [...]

    Leanne Betasamosake Simpson writes I want to be the kind of person that is good at making the best of a bad situation We re not in a bad situation, but still, it s good practice, because I m not actually a person that is good at making the best of a bad situation What I am good at is satire and sarcasm, which I tend to use to make good situations bad How hard could it be to make things go the opposite way I start by stating all the great things about this very moment This sun is sort of trying t [...]

    Favourite lines And then he comes to me again and he brings three things tobacco, a knife, and some proud, just for meght the unanswered thoughts of great mysteriesmama your first oceanAkiden means vagina Literally, I think it means earth place or land place I think about that word a lot because I approach my vagina as a decolonizing project and because metaphors are excellent hiding places.

    Alternates, or less, poetry and short stories.The poetry doesn t rock my world, but the short stories break my heart over and over.And over and over.And over.And over.Betasamosake Simpson taps into a voice right out of the ancient forests, that are still here, if you are willing to listen People, listen It is a vital voice.Listen Listen Listen Listen.

    I won this book through a Giveaway I feel like this is the sort of book that deserves a reread The stories and poems were so dense and intense I found I had to take a break and read something lighter between them I feel like I m going to go back to this book over and over and find new things every single time.

    Punchy, funny, and devastating Recommending to everyone There are moments of great beauty and humanity, and lots of moments that make this white girl uncomfortable and make me think about who I am, and how I choose to live and interact with the people in my life In other words, the best kind of read Simpson is fierce.
