“Bear shuffles its ursine way into every reader’s memory, an unforgettable novel. It is as quintessentially Canadian as snow, and as complicated. It’s been called an outrage, it’s been called pornography, it’s been called pastoral, mythological, gothic, none of which quite manages to say what this book does.”
