Winter Child reviewed on I’ve Read This

Anne Logan reviews Winter Child by Virginia Pésémapéo Bordeleau (translated by Susan Ouriou and Christelle Morelli) on

“One reason that I was eager to read this book was because one of the translators is Albertan Susan Ouriou, (the other translator is Christelle Morelli) who has done extensive work in her field, and is incredibly talented and intelligent. The things she accomplishes leaves me in awe, and she’s a true artist in every sense of the word. . . The writing is stunning, it reads more like an extended poem than a short novel, so it was easy to dive in and out of, or for those feeling more ambitious, an entire read through in one go. It’s also written from the perspective of an Indigenous woman, and with Canada Day just behind us, it seemed like an appropriate way to honour our Aboriginal population.”
