A Tale of Monstrous Extravagance by Thompson Highway

Last month I stumbled across Margaret Atwood’s Kreisel Lecture, and I was hooked. A Canadian university? Inviting prominent authors to speak? About things dear to them? And then publishing them as tiny, attractive books? I am in, in, in, in.

This Tomson Highway lecture is also available online in its entirety, which I might take a gander at while I’m digging into this volume. According to the official blurb, the lecture explores his personal journey, the communities he’s been a part of, and his dedication to the Trickster. AKA: a veritable smorgasbord of intriguing, entertaining things.
