“Witness the thrilling rise of not only a First Nations star but a Canadian one. The Reason You Walk points the way toward a new era of reconciliation and redemption – and shows us how a man who’s anchored by his language, his culture and his family is unstoppable.”—Joseph Boyden, author of The Orenda

“Brutally honest, original, funny, uncomfortable, and compelling.” —RBC Taylor Prize Jury Citation

“This book combines Kinew’s disarming personality and his willingness to share highly personal material – in this case, the life and death of his father, Tobasonakwut – to demonstrate the immense power of family and forgiveness as tools of reconciliation… This is not just a memoir, it’s a meditation on the purpose of living.” —The Globe and Mail
 
“His story has no filters. It pursues forgiveness, but not by running away from the ugliness that makes forgiveness necessary.” Quill & Quire
