Product Description

Review

[Ivan] proves to be a natural-born storyteller.
-The Globe and Mail (The Globe & Mail)

What makes Coyote's stories special-her humour, her humanity, her talent for sketching the bizarre in the everyday-soars beyond cliche.
-Toronto Star (Toronto Star)

You know you've read too many overwrought, over-workshopped stories when it comes as a shock to hear the sound of a human voice simply telling a tale in prose.
-The Vancouver Sun (Vancouver Sun)

It's simply a small treasure of storytelling existence.
-Quill & Quire (Quill & Quire)

. . . razor sharp. . .
-BC Bookworld (BC Bookworld)

With this collection, Coyote confirms that she's a literate, funny person. . .
-The Georgia Straight (Georgia Straight)

. . . beautifully written. . .
->Outline Magazine (Outline Magazine)

I strongly recommend this book. . .
-Broken Pencil (Broken Pencil)

. . . I found myself seduced by her experiences. . .
-Girlfriends Magazine (Girlfriends Magazine)

. . . a pure, honest style that pulls the reader in. . .
-Westender (Westender)

Where other authors would tend towards either a victim mentality or almost mindless anger at their situations, Coyote's understated wit and almost "down home" feel come through well.
-Gay People's Chronicle (GayPeople'sChronicle)

[A] must-read collection of short stories. . .
-Hour Magazine (Hour Magazine)

. . . Coyote is to CanLit what k.d. lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture.
-Ottawa X Press (Ottawa Xpress)

. . . it's very easy to go with Coyote's flow. There's something weirdly comfortable about being in her narrative orbit even though she happily operates on the fringe.
-NOW Magazine (NOW)

Without question, the stories are enjoyable, and Coyote's persona is attractive.
-subTerrain (subTerrain)

The stories are imbued with a deep-felthonesty, the kind that doesn't need to indulge in 'woe is me' self-reference. . .
-Event (Event)

. . .with just a few brief strokes, Ivan E. Coyote entertains us; she moves us and makes us think. And she always leaves us wanting more.
-Books in Canada (Books in Canada)

One Man's Trash is certainly a collection that I will treasure for a long time to come.
-Lambda Book Report (Lambda Book Report)

From the Publisher

Whitehorse-raised citizen of the world Ivan E. Coyote [is]. . . a transgendered force whose over-the-top spoken word performances are a legend. . . -Toronto Star

[Ivan] proves to be a natural-born storyteller. -The Globe & Mail

Coyote writes with spare elegance and more than a little humor. She is a writer of exceptional skill. -Bay Area Reporter

[A] talent for telling multi-layered stories in unaffected prose. -Girlfriends Magazine

Coyote's writing is dry, clever and full of insight into the nature of human eccentricity. -Shift Magazine

I love the way Ivan E Coyote writes like s/he is just sitting across from you chatting at your kitchen table. The stories are brilliant and well worth savouring. Coyote's best book to date. Highly recommended.

Ivan Coyote writes with sensitivity and humor about everyday life. Ivan is one of my favorite authors, it is wonderful to have a queer voice that is accessible to the straight community.
