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