Rez Dog Blues & The Haiku, William George Lindsay

Rez Dog Blues & The Haiku: A Savage Life in Bits and Pieces is an unnerving and realistic depiction of the effects of Indian residential school upon a generation. Set in the protagonist’s youth and written by someone who was there, William George Lindsay explores residential schools, the reservation, addiction, violence, and life as a runaway on the city streets of Canada. His Dickensian tale does not forget, however, the love, hope, humour, and courage that Indigenous people at the time exhibited, cultivated, and passed on, as a way to survive and even thrive. Readers are taken on a phantasmagorical odyssey as the protagonist goes from angry member of the punk generation to a possible redemptive and reconciliatory future. But will he and his cohorts survive to make it that far? A brutal, hard, yet ultimately uplifting read, and one grounded in truth, Rez Dog Blues & The Haiku evokes prose, poetry, and music, telling a nuanced philosophical tale of life, death, and dignity amidst the chaos and carnage of the times.
