Reviews

"I was hooked on the first page . . . In Pursued By A Bear, Daniel David Moses' [explorations of] the differences and disparities between western white expectations and heritage and Moses' native upbringing and heritage are juxtaposed and intertwined throughout the book, with surprising results. It's the crisscrossing of boundaries--from Cree to Ojibwa to Delaware, from native to non-native, from straight to gay, from past to present and back - that makes [the book] a delightful and startling read. . . . And he does it with an elegant simplicity, a wealth of knowledge and, above all, a wonderful wit that takes his art, but not himself, very seriously." --The Calgary Herald
"Moses's voice is firm and assured, but oddly hard to define, combining a loose colloquial sprawl and a pared-down tenseness with a mythic imagination and an everyday chattiness. He writes in a world in which everything is not only possessed of consciousness, but seems engaged in thoughtful consideration of itself." --Maggie Helwig, author, One Building in the Earth
"Moses writes with a poetic suggestiveness that recalls Tenessee Williams: he is operating as an artist, not as an explainer of apologist for his people." --The Globe and Mail
