Praise

“Tomson Highway’s prose is beautiful, lyrical. . . . Emotionally complex, witty, symphonic and sad, Kiss of the Fur Queen is a remarkable novel, filled with blood and guts, life and love.” —The Vancouver Sun

Kiss of the Fur Queen is a novel of affirmation . . . a book full of feeling for the North [that] displays startling human insight. . . . A novel that dances with life. —The Globe and Mail

“Highway’s depiction of the brothers’ trapline births are among the most haunting and evocative pieces of writing to ever appear in Canadian literature. The playful yet hallowed tone of these early passages is pure magic. . . . The novel remains, at its core, a celebration of survival and of life lived.” —Quill & Quire

“In a book that is both hard-hitting and whimsical, [Tomson Highway] offers a soulful look into the often transient nature of identity.” —National Post

“Tomson Highway’s first novel is made poignant by its passion and pain, but it is rendered charming and magical by a title character conjured up as a fatal beauty. . . . An affecting tale [of] fine satiric sense and linguistic play.” —Toronto Star

Kiss of the Fur Queen is, above all, a deeply personal statement. . . . The writing is superb in this book. . . . Reading [Highway’s] prose often gives one the feeling of looking through a spiritual veil. . . . A born story-teller and entertainer.” —The Star Phoenix

“[Kiss of the Fur Queen] pulses with life and humour and manages to meld the conventional English novel format with free-flowing fantastical native stories to create a new art form—a sort of Salinger on snowshoes. . . . [Highway has] a way of making words sound like music.” —Times Colonist
