Complete and intertwined, a beautiful meditation on identity. Thoughtful, wise, never bitter even when telling terrible stories. Pitch-perfect and bone-settling. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 155192787X, Paperback)

In Singing Home the Bones, Gregory Scofield honors and reclaims the history of his native Métis family while exploring newly revealed secrets about his long-lost father's Jewish heritage. Through a series of powerful and ambitious "conversations" (with "the Dead," "the Missing," and the "Living"), Scofield brings his ancestors to life, intimately connecting their lives with his own story. Infused with the Cree language, deeply reverent, often funny, Singing Home the Bones speaks in the fresh yet familiar voice of one of Canada's leading poets.
