Summary:
Rachel Zolf's fifth book assembles a pirate score of error-ridden historical and current documents--missionary narratives, immigration pamphlets, settler writings--to decry the ongoing violence of Canadian colonialism. It stars Janey Settler-Invader, a foul-mouthed mutant slouching toward the Red River Colony, along with a host of cacophonous, carnivalesque appropriations.
