Strange Bedfellows

Among the most recent purchasers of my book (Red Gentlemen and White Savages) are two institutions that probably don't often appear together in the same context: the Canadian Ministry of Indian and Northern Affairs, and Liberty University, which was founded by Jerry Falwell. It comforts me to know that if evangelical Dominionists and Canadian bureaucrats are ever trapped together on a desert island, they'll have at least one thing in common that they can discuss.

I can't believe you let Yale buy two copies. Where is your crimson pride?

Elena: I'm just sorry I didn't try to publish with Yale University Press - they do a great job marketing their books.

Kristen: You never know what books Canadian bureaucrats might read to while away a snowy August afternoon. But you're probably right about Liberty U.
