Read enough articles about CanLit’s adored Eden Robinson and you will find out about her laugh. It’s remarkable, bold and embracing, and it stays with you for a long time. Her writing could be described in much the same way. The Giller Prize–shortlisted novelist mesmerized readers with Son of a Trickster: a gritty, elegant tale of magic interwoven through teenager Jared’s harsh life in a small town, now continued in the follow-up, Trickster Drift. Robinson’s depictions of Indigenous traditions and modern realities place her firmly in the ranks of Thomas King, Lee Maracle and Richard Wagamese. Hear where her inspiration to keep writing comes from—and the secret of what she shares with Edgar Allen Poe.

Presented in partnership with Vancity.
