I really enjoyed Ivan Cayote's laid back story telling style. I also enjoyed the way the author seamlessly weaved between the male and female genders.

Coyote is a brilliant story-teller. Her stories are pure, uncluttered and uncomplicated… and a quick read. I was surprised to find that an author from the Yukon, living in Vancouver, had written a story about someone I knew, in a place I have been.

Ivan Coyote is a storyteller who was raised in the Yukon and now lives in Vancouver. This is her 4th collection of short stories... or should I say "his"? Ivan addresses this question in the piece titled "Imagine a Pair of Boots."

"I have always felt this way about gender pronouns, that 'she' pinches a little and 'he' slips off me too easily. I'm often asked by well-intentioned people which pronoun I prefer, and I always say the same thing: that I don't really have a preference, that neither pronoun really fits, but thank you for asking, all the same. Then I tell them they can call it like they see it, or mix it up a little if they wish."

The stories may be familiar to you if you are a regular reader of Xtra! West, since earlier versions appeared in Coyote's Loose End column. They are always good for a chuckle and certainly worth reading more than once.
