SummaryAdd a Summary
Eden Robinson's Monkey Beach opens with twenty year old Lisa Hill waiting for news of her little brother, Jimmy, who has been lost at sea. As the Coast Guard searches for the missing salmon fishing boat, Lisa ruminates over their shared childhood. Full of unforgettable characters, Monkey Beach is an exploration of Haisla traditions and the challenges Lisa and her family face as they struggle to commingle First Nations and Western influences.
Lisa comes of age in Kitamaat, B.C., where her Haida community includes uncles involved in First Nations warrior movements, industrious grandmothers with one foot in the grave and the other in various spirit worlds, and the long-armed specter of residential schools.
