Indigenous BeastsBook - 2006
Indigenous Beasts is a daring and energetic fiction collection from an enormously talented young writer. Sellyn's stories are populated with indifferent young men sorting out violence and despair in their lives, and clumsily questing after love-from parents, spouses and strangers. These stories are raw and elemental, yet beautiful and compelling. Through characters who are often despicable or violent, and with fresh, stark writing, Sellyn elevates the everyday into the truly extraordinary. Indigenous Beasts marks the arrival of a bold and confident new voice in Canadian fiction."My characters reveal that Canadians can be just as despicable as our American counterparts; I want to provide a 'warts and all' perspective, or as my grandfather said, 'plenty of drugs, sex, strippers and violence.'" -Nathan Sellyn
