This post-apocalyptic tale is set in a small, Anishinaabe town in winter. Without warning the phones stop working, then the TV. Fuel for the generator is limited. Food becomes a problem. Into this struggling community, an "unexpected visitor" arrives and things get complicated in historically familiar and harrowing ways. It's too late for you to read this while snowed in like I did, but if you like mysteries and you appreciate layers of meaning, this allegorical winter's tale is an excellent read. Waubgeshig Rice is originally from Wasauksing First Nation and this is his second novel.
