Review:

Johnston "moves effortlessly through cultural divides and through the oral and written worlds...The awe in his writing is his distinctive style." -2013 Jury, OAC Aboriginal Arts Award "Basil Johnston will always be one of our nation's great minds and storytellers. To have known him was to know a man who understood the great medicine in humour. I urge you to read this book. You will laugh out loud and maybe learn a thing or two as you do."- Joseph Boyden, author of The Orenda"Everyone who met Basil Johnston found him not only ingenious and sharp, but hilarious. Every single narrative he told - indeed every single word - was selected for meaning and layer. Spend time with him now in the pages of Candies, and find out why he is one of the best storytellers ever."- Niigaan Sinclair, Head, Department of Native Studies, University of Manitoba
