Waiting for Wovoka: Envoys of Good Cheer and Liberty by Gerald Vizenor
Wesleyan University Press
GERALD VIZENOR (Naples, FL) is a citizen of the White Earth Nation in Minnesota. He is a prolific and versatile author and editor of more than forty books, including Blue Ravens and Favor of Crows: New and Collected Haiku.
"Part novel, part haiku/Anishinaabe dream song, part puppet show, part autobiography, part travelogue = an all-Vizenor bushel of 'trickery queries and spontaneous mockeries;' 'heart songs, dream songs, and tumble names.'"--Kenneth M. Roemer, Co-Editor, The Cambridge Companion to Native American Literature
"Gerald Vizenor is a master of the postmodern narrative. No other Native writer does exactly what he does, and certainly no one does it with his verve and panache. This is an immensely talented and original novelist at the top of his game. Every recent novel by him surpasses the last, and this is no exception."--Jace Weaver, Franklin Professor of Native American Studies, University of Georgia
