Praise for

Birdie

 

“Birdie roars with life. Tracey Lindberg weaves a gripping account of a painful journey. Her heroine Bernice is by turns lyrical and brutal, gripping and insightful. An uncompromising first novel.”
—EDEN ROBINSON
Award-winning author of Monkey Beach and Blood Sports

 

“This is a gritty, articulate, beautifully written novel, and Lindberg is a powerful new voice on the literary landscape and on the road to decolonization.”
—MARIA CAMPBELL
Award-winning author of Halfbreed

 

“A stunning debut novel, grounded in the sheer beauty of Cree poetics, love, and a benevolence few of us are lucky enough to know. The brilliance of Indigenous women dances off each page—this story is our story, so carefully woven together into a tapestry that is the spine of our collective beings. I see myself, my family and my life in every sentence. This is the novel Canada has been waiting for.”
—LEANNE SIMPSON
Award-winning author of Island of Decolonial Love
