The Moon of Letting Go

The Moon of Letting Go

(2009)
A collection of stories by

 
Extending the tradition of Aboriginal storytelling, Richard Van Camp's new collection is eloquently and humorously optimistic. The stories in The Moon of Letting Go celebrate healing through modern day rituals that honour his Dogrib ancestry. Van Camp speaks in a range of powerful voices: a violent First Nations gangster has an astonishing spiritual experience, a single mother is protected from her ex by a dangerous medicine man, and a group of young men pay tribute to a friend by streaking through their northern town. The stories are set in First Nations communities in the Northwest Territories, Vancouver and rural British Columbia. They have been broadcast on the CBC, and appeared in anthologies, the Walrus, Prairie Fire, and other journals. The Moon of Letting Go was also shortlisted for the 2010 ReLit Awards.

"Again drawing on his Dogrib Nation background [Van Camp] seamlessly blends the beauty, violence, and pride of Aboriginal life with brutally disarming prose." - Matt Baker, Quill and Quire

"Van Camp is a masterful storyteller who knows how to reach even the most cynical of hearts. The collection is compelling. It is both an homage to hopefulness and a departure from it." - Mette Bach, Vancouver Review
