This latest Richard Wagamese title got a nice writeup in the AudioFile mag. I’m honored to have been asked, yet again, to perform this author’s work.

“Richard Wagamese was one of Canada’s most prolific Indigenous storytellers, and Christian Baskous has narrated several of his novels and nonfiction works in his throaty voice. Baskous returns for this posthumous collection of essays, articles, and social media posts, which give listeners a taste of Wagamese’s lyrical writing, kind spirit, and biting wit. Raised in foster homes, Wagamese was torn from his cultural roots but spent the rest of his life reclaiming them with works like these. Baskous hits all the notes in this meandering collection, sounding wise and witty in all the right places. There’s a lot packed into just over three hours, and these are stories that should be savored slowly. D.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine”
