Product description


"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
