A Really Good Brown Girl by Marilyn Dumont

Marilyn Dumont, in a fine volume called A Really Good Brown Girl (Brick), writes a deeply committed Métis statement about place, language, race, exclusion, and education; the poems include reflections on railway dreams and notions of a united Canada, with a “reply” to Sir John A. Macdonald, and a brilliant third section of protest poems proving especially powerful.
