Black Apple

Joan Crate

Simon & Schuster Canada

The shameful legacy of Canada’s residential school system, the church-run educational regime that forcibly plucked First Nations children from their homes in a effort to compel their assimilation into mainstream (meaning European) culture, has been largely ignored in Canada’s fiction, apart from books for young readers. This neglect, combined with the federal government’s renewed efforts to address that ignoble history, makes Joan Crate’s moving new novel, Black Apple, both timely and welcome. Also noteworthy, it’s the first fiction title published by veteran editor Phyllis Bruce since leaving Harper-Collins to shore up Simon & Schuster’s fledgling Canadian publishing program.
