Celebrating 20 years of Richard Van Camp’s bestselling short story collection!
With a new introduction by the author and two new graphic-novel style stories!
The stories of Angel Wing Splash Pattern are playful, moving, and starkly honest in their portrayal of contemporary Indigenous life. Here is where the stories began for many of Van Camp’s most beloved characters, including Larry Sole from The Lesser Blessed. There are other voices here, too—other secrets and stories from communities across the north and the south. They are linked by themes of hope, hunger, and the spirit of friendship.
Angel Wing Splash Pattern is where Richard Van Camp’s love of the short story began. In this, his first published short story collection, he demonstrates the range of his talent and the pursuit of excellence in his craft as a writer and storyteller.
