Jennifer Manuel’s short fiction has appeared in PRISM International, The Fiddlehead, Room Magazine and Little Fiction. Author Diana Gabaldon describes Manuel's writing as “astonishing in its intimacy, delicate complexity, and sense of compassion.” A long-time activist for First Nations rights, Manuel taught elementary and high school in the lands of the Tahltan and Nuu-chah-nulth peoples. The Heaviness of Things that Float is Manuel’s compelling debut novel, a deft exploration of the delicate dynamic between First Nations communities and settlers.
