Ivan E. Coyote is a transgendered writer/storyteller who grew up in the Yukon and now lives in Vancouver. This book is his latest and it is a compilation of short stories. The stories are not really fiction; they are based on real life experience, though I doubt that they would fit neatly into any one genre.
I really enjoyed this book. Along with being very well written, Coyote provides an insightful and fresh commentary on a host of social issues. I am particularly enamored with the ambiguous construct of gender that he portrays, and the way in which this ambiguity shapes daily experiences.
