benrogerswpg's review against another edition
I enjoyed this quick Indigenous read.
I found it quite similar to [b:Jonny Appleseed|37514017|Jonny Appleseed|Joshua Whitehead|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1514035743l/37514017._SX50_.jpg|59124667], which I also enjoyed, and [b:Noopiming: The Cure for White Ladies|51236405|Noopiming The Cure for White Ladies|Leanne Betasamosake Simpson|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1582850677l/51236405._SY75_.jpg|75974277] which I really enjoyed.

Some authors have dense texts because they're full of it. Belcourt's writing is crammed to the brim from having so many ideas to get down while grappling with language, melding poetry with essays and other forms (there's even a piece that touches on the destructive power "simple" as an adjective used on writing). Each sentence feels like a highlight to be reread over and over.
