The TradeWaiters 46: “Louis Riel” by Chester Brown

The TradeWaiters read Louis Riel by Chester Brown, which gave us a chance not only to meet our Cancon quota, but to dive deep into Canadian history, as well as a discussion on biography and the journalistic integrity of the author. Canadians can look forward to feeling nostalgic over Expos 86 and 67, while listeners from away can look forward to finding out just how interesting (and how grim) Canadian history can get.

Ed the Happy Clown, The Playboy, I Never Liked You, Paying for It, and Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus, all also by Chester Brown.
