    1. Read for my class on British Columbian literature.The Ecstasy of Rita Joe is about a young First Nations girl who moves from the Caribou Country to the big city and encounters poverty, racism and alcoholism Rita Joe, our protagonist, is then charged with multiple crimes, including prostitution and theft She has to find people to vouch for her character in a certain amount of hours I forget how many or else she will go to jail.Full review here on my BookLikes account.

    2. Read this after a university professor said to me in his office, You re a regular Rita Joe Another example of wrong assumption of my ethnicity see my review of Boy, Snow, Bird After I read it I was both deeply insulted by the prof s comment and at the same time deeply moved by the plight of Canadian Aboriginals, especially women The idea of victim hood as a product of both the self and society stays in my mind.

    3. I have never seen this play in production It disturbed me but it also reminded me that life is like this for some people who don t live that far from me.
