Description

Angel Wing Splash Pattern celebrates Richard Van Camp's 24-year career as one of Canada's most prolific and award winning best-selling authors. This collection of hilarious and profound stories is where we meet Torchy, Sfen and Snowbird in "Mermaids" and this is where we see Larry from The Lesser Blessed in his epic short story "How I Saved Christmas." There is pain in these stories and there is loss. There is death, but there is also rebirth, and there is always the search from each of the narrators for personal truth. The voices, secrets, and communities across the north and the south are all linked by themes of hope, the spirit of friendship, and hunger. This 20th anniversary edition of a Canadian Indigenous classic contains additional material, including a new story, a new introduction and cover. Richard has gone on to publish four other short story collections, but Angel Wing Splash Pattern is where Richard's love for the short story first premiered.
