A Really Good Brown Girl (Brick Books Classics Book 4) Kindle Edition
First published in 1996, A Really Good Brown Girl is a fierce, honest and courageous account of what it takes to grow into one’s self and one’s Metis heritage in the face of myriad institutional and cultural obstacles. It is an indispensable contribution to Canadian literature.
"Each poem ... looks us straight in the eyes and confronts us ... mocks attitudes that lie deep within our culture"--Susan Musgrave, The Vancouver Sun
"Dumont undercuts the rhetoric of Canadian intervention and reminds readers that the desire to join both coasts of the country came at a heavy price ... Dumont employs her own discursive strategies to ensure that the irony of the M?tis population's survival is communicated ... [A Really Good Brown Girl] cultivates its own space of in-between-ness."--Jennifer Andrews, Canadian Poetry--This text refers to the paperback edition.
