About Eden Robinson:

Haisla/Heiltsuk novelist Eden Robinson is the author of a collection of novellas written when she was a Goth called Traplines, which won the Winifred Holtby Prize in the UK. Her next novels, Monkey Beach and Blood Sports, were written before she discovered she was gluten-intolerant and tend to be quite grim, the latter being especially gruesome because half-way through writing it, Robinson gave up a two-pack-a-day cigarette habit and the more she suffered, the more her characters suffered. Even so, Monkey Beach won the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize and was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and the Governor General’s Award for Fiction. By the time Eden began her Trickster Trilogy, however, she had given full rein to her matriarchal tendencies. The first book, Son of a Trickster, became a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and Canada Reads. Trickster Drift, the second book in the trilogy, won the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize. In 2017, Eden was awarded the Writers’ Trust Fellowship. She lives in Kitamaat Village, BC.

For six seasons she was the host of CBC Radio One's Unreserved. Currently, she is helping to create a podcast called This Place, which will focus on Indigenous history in Canada.

Her debut poetry collection 'this is a small northern town' shared her reflections of growing up in a racially divided place. It won the 2009 Aqua Books Lansdowne Prize for Poetry. Her second book, 'calling down the sky,' is a collaborative work with her mother who was forced to attend Indian Residential School. She is currently at work on her first play with the Royal MTC’s Pimootayowin Creators Circle and her third collection of poetry.
