Faller mixes Roshoman style storytelling with traditional stories to describe the meeting, or juxtapositions, of a few characters on a Reservation. All of these characters are damaged in one way or the other. Faller is not narrative so much as bursts and flashes. It is not about what happens as much as moments in time. The stories fall together rather than follow each other. Faller is dark and funny in places, less sane and rational than yearning. Haunted. Not like every other book, Faller is the first work by an old young Indigenous writer, not trying to make sense of life on the Reservation, but giving a glimpse into the world he grew up in.

About the author

Jules Delorme is a Mohawk First Nations author who was born and grew up on the Akwasane Reserve just across the St. Lawrence River from Cornwall, Ontario. Of Mohawk and French heritage, being one of only three kids from the Reservation to attend the white public school, having Asperger's, Dyslexia, and a violent childhood, Jules wrote and told stories to stay alive. Writing was something he didn't share with the world until now. He spends most of his time wondering why he is not dead yet and trying to remember the traditional teachings of his Tóta and his childhood. And, of course, writing. Always writing.
