Canada Reads @ the Library: Small Game Hunting at the Local Coward Gun Club by Megan Gail Coles

Defended by Jason Purcell

Megan Gail Coles’s Small Game Hunting at the Local Coward Gun Club throws into high relief the intersecting conditions—ongoing colonialism, racism, misogyny and violence against women, capitalism and the failures of resource extraction, among others—that converge to mark Canadian life. This novel reminds us how inextricable any one social issue is from any other, and brings into focus a vision of Canada that resists the national mythology.
