Drew Hayden Taylor is on The George Stroumboulopoulos Show on March 11, 2011. Here is what the CBC had to say about Drew:
Contemporary storyteller Drew Hayden Taylor is a tireless humorist. An Ojibway from the Curve Lake First Nations, Drew’s sharp political observations about culture, politics and people are always sweetened with a spoonful of the absurd. A versatile and prolific author, he has written award-winning plays, short stories, novels, TV scripts and published numerous journalistic essays. An equal opportunity satirist, Drew’s writing bridges the Aboriginal world and non-Aboriginal world with irreverence and fearlessness. He started his career writing scripts for the ‘The Beachcombers’, wrote plays like his acclaimed Dreamer’s Rock, and was the Artistic Director of Canada’s premier Native theater company, Native Earth Performing Arts. Drew’s other credits include his collection of essays Funny You Don’t Look Like One: Observations of a Blue-Eye Ojibway, and a book about Native sexuality called Me Sexy.
Drew has two new books out: a Governor General Literary Award-nominated novel, Motorcycles and Sweetgrass and a collection of essays NEWS: Postcards From the Four Directions.
His most recent title is Dead White Writer on the Floor, which is now available from Talonbooks.
